Luftwerk exhibits Spectrum a digitized and re-imagined color wheel composed of 529 squares that, once illuminated, meld into more than 3,174 tones of red, yellow and blue. This mutable continuum features color in interaction with light, varying and mixing to create nearly endless possibilities for color perception.

Coupled with original music by Owen Clayton Condon, transLIT illuminates the viaducts of Humboldt Boulevard with vibrant imagery inspired by flora and fauna, celebrating Chicago’s newest public park – The 606.
June 6th and 7th starting at 8:30pm
The 606 connects parks, people, and communities; what once physically separated four neighborhoods now will knit them together and attract visitors from throughout Chicago and beyond. The 606 will change what it means to go to the park. The 606 runs along Bloomingdale Avenue (1800N) on Chicago’s northwest side, and is a partnership between the City of Chicago, the Chicago Park District and not-for-profit The Trust for Public Land.
