Experiencing Color | LATITUDE Chicago
Responding to the form and function of the entrance hallway at 21c Kansas City, Luftwerk’s Linear Sky produces an anamorphic optical illusion of an expanding, outward pattern of line and color upon both entering and exiting the ramp.
Luftwerk’s artwork titled Transition traces a portion of the Greenway path as it shines a light—both literally and metaphorically—on this connective artery in the city. Celebrating the green layer that reunites the neighborhoods once divided by the freeway, it nods to the now buried thoroughfare of Interstate 93 below.
Free and open to the public | Presented by the Brown Arts Initiative
Opening Saturday, February 24th from 5-8 PM at Volume Gallery
afterglow reveals Luftwerk’s interest in the effects of a gradient of light, from brightness to darkness and the shifting perception of colors in different light conditions.
afterglow will be on view through April 7th

Drawing inspiration from the visualization of atmospheric conditions, Current Air, borrows from the graphic language of meteorology to create a hybridized visual current of color, image, and pattern. This video hints to scientific expressions of temperature, moisture, and wind allowing for free associations of the viewer. Developed to activate 150 Media Stream with vibrant colors, it draws from the fluid dynamic of the adjacent Chicago River.
