Chasing Rainbows By Leo Villareal
Sandra Gering Gallery, New York, NY

Exhibited at the Sandra Gering Gallery in Spring 2004, Chasing Rainbows is comprised of 60 lengths of iColor® Accent 8’, stacked horizontally in groups of 20 and mounted on three walls. Using custom-designed software, Villareal created a series of intricate light shows that, according to the Gallery, use both pattern and rhythm to create a mesmerizing temporal abstraction within a system of matrices.. Each 8’ length of iColor Accent is programmable in 1’ increments, allowing precisely designed effects that range from abstract patterns to shapes resembling the graphics of early video games. Viewers are transfixed by the seemingly endless flow of morphing colors, patterns and images.

Villareal’s work continues to push the boundaries of light manipulation – a feat made possible by the intelligent nature of LED sources and Color Kinetics’ digital control technology.
