Reflection Field at Coachella 2014

At this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts festival, artist Phillip K. Smith brought his “Reflection Field” to the chaotic masses. During the day the massive mirrored structures reflect and blend seamlessly into the desert landscape. But after sun down, the structures become illuminated monuments that can be seen far and wide. If now you got that ravin’ feeling, scroll down to see photos (courtesy of Nuvue Interactive Visual Communications Lab):

Light formations in the dark

Intricate light patterns making beautiful representations in the dark, Makoto Tojiki’s LED installations are something to behold. For the last three years Tojiki has been bringing his work to life using LED lights, copper wires, IC, steel, ABS, PVC, Aluminum, wood, and acrylic. His latest LED piece, titled “Hope and Dream”, was exhibited last year to the L’ART DE LA RADIANCE 30th Anniversary Celebration presented by Clé de Peau Beauté, a Japanese manufacturer of luxury cosmetics, makeup, skincare and fragrance. He states:

“The forward direction of light always entices hope and dream. The young girl is always in pursuit of womanly beauty, not knowing womanly beauty is always pursuing her. Her loveliness and the gorgeousness of her reflected light will dance the radiant dance of luminous splendour, resulting in fleeting images that are as ephemeral and enigmatic as the passing shadow of a bird.”

- quoted from booklet “L’ART DE LA RADIANCE”
