“Iridescence” for MoMA PS1 Warm Up Series
Installation

I was awarded the oppurtunity to realize MoMA PS1’s 2018 summer series Warm Up stage Installation. I put together a team of designers (Laura Casañas, Lauren Pedrosa, and Paola Martinez) to create an installation titled Iridescence wich  featured  repurposed CD’s and dichroic film as the design’s primary materials. This artwork utilizes varying degrees of light and reflection to create a brilliant kaleidoscopic illuminated environment with thematically relevant interactive elements.  The design contained hidden light elements which turned on at sundown to transform the stage into a glowing prismatic spectacle. The installation was fabricated in MoMA PS1’s  Kunsthalle Gallery.
