Artist Statement

Luceat represents Atlanta’s summer storms, and the gorgeous misty light that follows. During its previous
installation in Essex Branch Brook Park in Newark, NJ as part of the Cherry Blossoms in Winter exhibition last December, Luceat ran on a timer, switching on in the late afternoon as the winter sun was setting. For Art on the Atlanta BeltLine, I’d like to try a weatherproof photocell in lieu of a timer, so the installation will illuminate itself based on the amount of sunlight it picks up. Imagine the precious moment when a person, suddenly caught in the rain, dashing for shelter, happens upon this art piece aglow, and they stop, and they feel the rain.
