Work 2: Leo Villareal’s Light Matrix, 2005
Leo Villareal’s Light Matrix is composed of three hundred and sixty clusters of twenty-five super-bright white LED lights that continuously display patterns of light—random in order and length—on the exterior of the Gallery’s Auditorium. This work demonstrates the trend of using non-traditional materials in contemporary sculpture, with Villareal using lights and computer software the way other artists use paint and a canvas, or wire and clay.
