LED sculpture by Mark C. Slee
- luz / lo͞os
- spanish for "light" — the natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible
- ma·trix / māʹtrĭks
- something that constitutes the place or point from which something else originates, takes form, or develops
Lutrix explores the use of light to create a sense of structure in three dimensional space, imbuing otherwise inanimate objects with a sense of personality.
The sculpture is comprised of a cube with four outwardly-lit faces and an inwardly-lit ground perimeter, flanked by two cylindrical towers, yielding a total of 248 unique points of independently controlled light. Patterns explore interaction between these elements through color and form.
