The City of West Hollywood through its Arts and Cultural Affairs Commission presents Illumetric, a triptych of massive diamond, cube, and rectangle-shaped sculptures brought to us by Shana Mabari. Mabari's latest work, Illumetric, is installed on the median of the 8400 block of Santa Monica Boulevard (between La Cienega Boulevard and Orlando Avenue) as part of the City of West Hollywood’s Art on the Outside program (July 2014 through June 2015). Illumetric's Diamond, Cube, and Rectangle shaped pieces radiate colors of red, blue, and yellow. Throughout the day they will change from saturated hues to a transparent and ethereal glow as illumination effect takes place after the sun goes down. The pieces capture and interact with the ephemeral qualities of daylight, and feature internal LED illumination for nighttime display, emphasizing light as an intangible but physical and communal presence at any hour.
Shana Mabari is an Los Angeles-based artist who explores the intersections of art, science, and technology in her work. Her installations and environments investigate ways in which we perceive our world through a skilled orchestration of light, reflection, color contrast, and geometry. Her installations and environments investigate ways in which worldly stimuli and phenomena are absorbed and processed through sensory and visual perception. She orchestrates light, reflection, color contrast,and geometry to play with and expand the reality and experience of physical space. Mabari's work extends the Light and Space movement that originated in the 1960s into the 21st century.
