LIGHTSTREAM. Built for New York MTA’s Brooklyn Metro Station is a generative artwork that responds to passengers entering and exiting the trains. The ebb and flow of traffic triggers cascading patterns of light to ripple up and down the platform.

Scheduled for installation early 2019.

Materials: Steel, Wood, LEDs, Acrylic, Aluminum

Responsibilities

I co-project managed, designed, and fabricated all physical aspects of this project. I took the conceptual model of our principle architects and went through numerous prototype phases to develop a platform wide installation of 16 modules of varying size and affect. Design objective: to create an elegant aesthetic that enhances the performance of the lights while making it weather resistant, tamper proof, and easy to maintain.

First prototype with welded stainless steel frame and integrated LEDs
