Multiverse, by Leo Villareal



American lighting artist Leo Villareal has created a beautiful installation of LEDs and programming called Multiverse, located in the tunnel within the National Gallery of Art – you know, the big tunnel, about 200 feet long, escalators…  very similar to the one lit by my friend Marcus Wuebker in the Detroit Airport.  The lighting in the Detroit (McNamara Tunnel) is pretty amazing.

From the video, so is Leo Villareal’s tunnel installation.  There are somewhere in the neighborhood of 41,000 LEDs in this installation – a beautiful work, and some beautiful programming.  Watch the video below – I hope that it appears as naturally random and fractal-esque to you as it does to me.

I also found a video originally at MeFeedia of Leo Villareal talking about sequencing and his thoughts on it.  It’s an interesting video, because now I want to hang out with Leo and buy him a Scotch.  Single malt, of course.

Take a moment to check out Leo Villareal’s website, too.

Thanks, PSFK!
