Sculpting with Light: Found Materials, Light, and Guerilla Public Art with Caitlind r.c. Brown and Wayne Garrett

EYE – Esker Youth Engagement

At this hands-on workshop youth are invited to construct miniature light sculptures from everyday objects. In the second half of the workshop we’ll bring the light sculptures out into the night streets surrounding Esker for a guerilla exhibition in the public realm. How does light change darkness? How does art change public space? We look forward to exploring together!

No experience necessary. Materials will be provided, including battery-powered light sources, found materials, an overhead projector and more. However, we challenge you to bring an object you would normally throw away, and that is shiny, transparent or reflective. It can be anything from a broken mirror to a shiny wrapper, but it should be something you’d normally throw out.

Dress for the weather.
Recommended for participants aged 13-17, but flexible.
Free! registration not required
