Tiajuanco

Mania

I took several trips to the ancient ruins of Tiajuanco, next to lake Titicaca, in Bolivia. This series is inspired by the bas relief characters that are found on the Puerta del Sol and Pre-Hispanic ceramic works.

 

 

The series Mania combines primary colors on a black background. They are designed to be seen through 3D chroma glasses. The is that reds, oranges and yellows pop out, while blues and greens recede. Several pairs of glasses are provided with each artwork.

 

 

Language of Blinking Lights

In the series Language of Blinking Lights, I sewed LEDs onto my canvases using conductive thread. The LEDs are controlled by Arduino Lily Pad micro controller. On some of the works there are light sensors and the LEDs respond to the changes in ambient light.
