Smith Martin/ Apache Blvd Station,Tempe, AZ
Carpet of Languages
HID ellipsoidal projectors, weather enclosures, Gobos, sensors. 2011
There are over 70 languages spoken in this very diverse and international community. This light sculpture is composed of snippets of text taken from letters to grandmothers in 9 of these languages. These phrases are projected onto the walkway to the station- literally walking through script and words from many cultures like walking the halls of the United Nations.
