VOL 23

August 07, 2014
@ Mall B

On Thursday, August 7th, PKNCLE is partnering with LAND Studio to help kick off the AHA! light installations on the public mall, which will help start the Cleveland Gay Games!

We will be perched on the grassy hill created by the convention center below, looking back towards the beautiful skyline of Cleveland with the sun setting behind us over Lake Erie. The presenter list will be fantastic, as we curate a mix of international artists with installations at AHA! and an amazing group of local creatives.

The event is FREE and dows not require a registration. Come with a blanket, so lawn chairs, or just yourselves and be ready to hear some stupendous new presenters!


Special thanks to LAND Studio, Cuyahoga Arts & Culture, and Cleveland Public Power for making this event possible.

Interactive Art

@ VOL 23 ON AUG 07, 2014

For the last 15 years Jen Lewin has been creating large, immersive, interactive art pieces for the public...including interactive sound and light sculptures that inspire people into play, to woven fiber video curtains that reflect movement, or giant, robotic, ethereal moths that dance based on human touch. She brings an organic, feminine quality to her electronic work that leaves viewers enchanted and surprised. As a trained architect, Lewin’s pieces are often the scale of buildings and rooms. She creates experiences and environments that are both part of, and integrated into, a physical space.
