Latent (e)Scapes

by Christina Leigh Geros (MLA/MAUD ’15) recipient of  Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study’s biennial Public Art Competition.

Geros’s installation comprises thousands of 1/8-inch acrylic rods, embedded with LEDs and hooked up to sensors. During the day, the rods blend into the surrounding yellow-green grass. Then, at night, the embedded LEDs transform the garden into a glowing landscape that responds to its surroundings, the tubes shifting in both color and intensity.

“Latent (e)Scapes,” was on display at the Susan S. and Kenneth L. Wallach Garden in Radcliffe Yard.
