“New Dawn” Simulates the Romance of Dappled Light #ArtTuesday #NYC

New Dawn SR 720x350

This art piece tries to capture that moment when the sun is shining just right through a tree into a window. Via Hyperallergic:

But there is no sun visible in the sky at 5:30pm when I visit bitforms gallery. It is the deep dark of winter, thus the sun set some time ago. It is cold. I am surrounded by concrete, glass, plastics, iron, and steel. Yet, standing in the small antechamber at the front of the gallery, the branches and boughs still shift and sway, and the light that makes it through quietly mesmerizes me. The artwork “New Dawn” (2017) really is only fiberglass and brass, fitted with some clever electronics and LEDs, and it’s profoundly sad that this work is so convincing. This piece of technological fool’s gold, created by the UK-based practice UVA, is precisely the kind of work that we will look to make and share once we have thoroughly laid waste to the planet and become even more enmeshed in the global matrix of abstracted electronic participation. At that point, most of what the world will have access to is this kind of simulacra, rather than the lived experience.
