Wilshire & Western Metro Station, Los Angeles, CA

An undulating environment of shifting light, Lumenscape activates the entry wall at the top of the public stairway for the new transit-oriented KOAR development project and serves as a luminous gateway in relation to the underground subway and the intense speed of the nearby traffic intersection. The varying, animated color palette pulls its soft, glowing references from the array of Koreatown neon signs. The artwork explores the potential of haptic sensations within the normally reserved public space by offering textural surfaces and scales that provoke visual and tactile exploration.
