SCI-Arc Gallery Exhibit
Neil M. Denari Architects
FLUOROSCAPE © 2006
August 4 – September 17, 2006
Closing Reception: Sunday, September 17 from 6-8pm
The SCI-Arc Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition by Los Angeles based architect, Neil M. Denari, in collaboration with Bartco Lighting, Inc. Fluoroscape 2006 will consist of hundreds of individual lighting elements, while considering the geometric and graphic potential of an organized system of dotted lines, structural elements and electricity as it produces the most visceral effect on the visitor’s experience and perception of the environment.
As a precisely engineered project executed in collaboration with Bartco Lighting, the light formation will utilize an industrially manufactured product to generate maximum radiance that will blend and enhance the vividness and intensity of daylight and explore the effects of light as a generator of space. The array of fixtures will create a spatial environment that seeks to push the boundaries of conventional lighting installation.
