Light Artist – Jen Lewin

Jen Lewin has created a number of permanent and temporary exhibits all over the world to allow more people to experience Light Art. Her work is almost always connected with nature. Many of her works are displayed in public places, and enhance nature with interactive sound and light.

She uses a number of different tools to create her art. Almost all of her works use multicolored LED lights. The LEDs are commonly controlled by sensors, such as pressure sensors, distance sensors, a camera, or a capacitive touch sensor. Many of her works also integrate motor control or sound into them as well.

Most of all, Jen Lewis hopes to use her art to provide a unique experience that everyone can enjoy, and that will connect people together.
