I have transformed 2 giant windows on Minna St. into lightboxes for a couple photos that are 8 feet tall. And on Natoma St. I have 3 lightboxes in smaller sizes mixed in with Andy’s installation.

Our blurb about the installation:
In this collaborative art installation by photographer Ari Salomon and sculptor Andy Vogt, each artist relies on a systematic process to create large-scale abstract artworks. Salomon experiments with found-lighting situations to reveal hints of what is all around us but hidden by the limits of perception. Vogt transforms found-wood lath strips into architectural and geological constructions, and these new structural meditations examine how time and materials intersect with our perception of place. Both artists explore the concept of building abstractions of reality in order to bring another kind of reality into focus.
