The cube, diamond and rectangle sculptures on the median of Santa Monica Boulevard’s 8400 block, part of West Hollywood’s Art on the Outside program, will remain on display through June 2015. The geometric installations, called Illumetric, are by L.A. artist Shana Mabari, who worked with Jack Brogran on fabrication and design concepts.
“Through light photons, reflections, memory, and afterimages we process our surroundings and our reactions to them thus illuminating the complexities of our biological composition and human experience,” Mabari said in a city press release.
She doesn’t mean “illuminating” in a solely figurative sense; the sculptures have LED lights so they will glow at night, “emphasizing light as an intangible but physical and communal presence at any hour,” the city says.
Mabari is part of the continuum of the Light and Space movement that originated in California in the 1960s.
