Working collaboratively with Redline Contemporary Arts Center and The Temple Artist Studios, myself, along with Ashley Frazier and Michael F. Sperandeo, created 'Lights Out Lights On' : a one-night celebration of new media art and installation.
Last year, we launched our pilot event, with nearly 300 people in attendance and over 20 participating artists. During the course of the night we activated unique spaces throughout the historic Temple with sensory-based installation, projected media, light-based installation work, as well as a projected video on the outside facade of the building. At the same time, the gallery space of Redline was completely blacked out to allow for projected film, interactive installation, experimental performance, and light-based projects of all kinds. These two neighboring spaces act as a hub for emerging artists in Denver; this event was the first time in their history that they have been publicly activated concurrently.
