LED sculpture by Mark C. Slee

luz / lōos
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.
