Ballroom Luminoso is a series of six brilliantly lit, color-changing chandeliers. Each sculpture contains a custom-designed LED light fixture, which casts sharply detailed overlapping shadows. Drawing from the formal elegance of the freeway underpass and the cultural currents of the surrounding neighborhoods, the piece transforms a forgotten space into one that connects the community. The piece won SXSW Eco’s Place by Design “Transformative Design Award.”
