EXHIBIT: NIGHT LIFE - Lena Daly


Presented for FEMMEBIT Festival, Nightlife is a pop-up exhibit featuring works by Lena Daly. On view in the storefront adjacent to Civic Center Studios at 213 S Broadway, the installation encompasses video projection mapped onto sculptural objects integrating lighting and sound. The sculptures are uv‐reactive and phosphorescent, which interact with the video projection and respond to uv‐lighting by glowing— appearing fluorescent in low light. Elements are elevated further with sound via Hypersonic speakers which use ultrasound and are audible only when in close proximity to the sculptural scene. A hydrophone field recording of coral and sea life engages viewer intimacy, with each environment placed selectively to illuminate a cavernous space.

‘Night Dive,’ 2019. Video and Ultrasound projection, UV‐reactive paint, wood pedestals, uranium glass, UV‐reactive flock, HD projector, HSS speaker, plexiglass, and LED UV light, dimensions variable.
