SACO brought to life media artist Lozano-Hemmer’s enormous interactive lighting installation using its innovative V-Stick S LED Video Light fixtures from its Shockwave Direct View series, integrated in a custom reflective housing, designed by SACO. The huge sphere is made of 342 LED sticks, which reflects phenomena that take place on the surface of the sun. The work is a collaboration between the artist and NASA.
The artwork was unveiled as “Blue Sun” for the first time at the inaugural exhibition of the Amorepacific Museum of Art, located in Seoul. To reflect the change of color from blue to orange-yellow, it premiered in Canada under the name of “Volumetric Solar Equation”. The iconic chandelier was housed at the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (MNBAQ) from September 27, 2018 until April 28, 2019.
