Item Details
UVA is inspired by the idea of an artificial machine star, wired by hand and produced using only LED lights sold as some variation of white. (Cool, natural, neutral, and warm white) As it runs, UVA produces a shifting menagerie of color gradients which pulse and blend, combining rigid geometric patterns with a soft atmospheric glow.

UVA, 2017

Hand crafted digital light art

Patrick Ethen is a Detroit-based artist and designer who works with light as his primary medium. Exploring the role of handcrafted objects in a digital age, Ethen uses meticulously wired arrays of light to create mesmerizing installations which envelop the viewer in a meditative, immersive aura which feels simultaneously human and artificial. Describing his practice as a sort of "pseudo-spiritual, psychedelic techno-futuristic experience," Ethen's work is a commentary on the role of technology and its influence on society.
