Debbie Long Turns RVs Into Vessels of Light #ArtTuesday

3 D Long Willa Interior scaled

Debbie Longs Light ships transport people literally and maybe metaphysically. Inside each RV is a surreal light experience. From Hyperallergic:

Over the past decade, the Taos-based Long has outfitted two vintage RVs with hundreds of cast glass pieces that collect light from the sky via a transparent ceiling. Inside the pristine white chamber of “Willa,” stationed outside the Harwood Museum of Art, viewers lounge in cream-colored beanbag chairs for a one-hour immersive viewing experience (no phones or recording devices are allowed). Clouds pass overhead, light trickles from sunrise to sunset to twilight to moonlight, and every movement of the sky orchestra flickers in the handmade glass pieces. Like many of the most successful Light and Space pieces, “Willa” and her predecessor, a trailer called “Naima,” rely on the simplest of gimmicks: light collection.
