PORTLAND, OR., Nov. 22nd, 2021. Continuing a tradition of sound-activated light installations at Portland Winter Light Festival, CymaSpace, a Deaf-led Art and Media nonprofit organization, will present a pop-up art installation for festival patrons at Oregon Contemporary, February 4th-12th, 2022. The installation is currently being fabricated at the CymaSpace studio by lead artist Chris Balduc with assistance from Deaf musician and CymaSpace founder Myles de Bastion. The festival is spread out over various locations in Portland via “pop-up” exhibits of free-form light art installations. The event is free to the public.
“Green Fuse” will expand on the CymaSpace approach to creative synthesis of music and programmable light art. LED strips are programmed to react to music, showcasing a multimedia experience that is accessible and inclusive for Deaf and hearing festival patrons. The sound system will be provided by Friends Of Noise, a nonprofit organization that serves the musically talented youth in Portland by hosting sound and music workshops and inclusive all-ages concerts.
Come and see “Green Fuse” at Oregon Contemporary from 6pm to 10pm on Feb. 4th, 5th, 6th, 11th and 12th, 2022. A CymaSpace representative will be on hand during the exhibit hours to support the art and answer questions.
