On a random meandering through the hood Friday night, we were charmed by a little light show emanating from Ventana244. The boutique art space located on North 6th is currently hosting Intensity, an interactive project experimenting with sound, poetry and movement.
One of the featured artists, Tisch student Mimi Yin, combines her professional software experience with dance training in ‘Hangman’s Jig.’ Light bulbs move mechanically to specialized algorithisms creating a shadow dance party. Yin hopes to expand the piece to a larger performance art production.
Check out Yin’s work as well as the others (one of which involves screaming at a very timid tree) at Ventana244 now. The show runs until July 10.
