In February 2012, Chicago, Illinois’ Millennium Park was transformed into a digital canvas of light and geometrical form with Luminous Field – an interactive, site-specific video and sound installation by Chicago artists, Luftwerk. Every evening from February 10-20, 2012, Luminous Field illuminated Anish Kapoor’s celebrated work Cloud Gate and its surrounding plaza with dramatic images and colors set to music.
Luftwerk is the collaborative vision of Petra Bachmaier and Sean Gallero. New media installations merge video and light with material, surface, and structure, shaping content into an immersive sculptural experience. Their work illuminates the realm of special events, live performance, gallery and public venue, in locations as diverse as MASS MoCA, JFK Airport, Emirates Palace, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater and Robie House.
