Coinciding with the 6 Days in November event this week, from November 16th -20th from 6:00PM-11:30 PM, you can view The Winston-Salem Light Project (WSLP), a multimedia public art presentation using the facades of prominent downtown buildings as the canvas. The lighting and projected images are designed by UNCSA college seniors using image and projection software. Non-senior students provide the technical crew for the project.
|The Pepper Building WSLP 2009|
By juxtaposing the large industrial scale with the personal immediate, the WSLP 2010 will provide an opportunity for participants to see their city in an entirely new light. By shaking up objective experience we are allowing the individual to reflect on themselves and the city of which they are a part.
All human experience contains a kind of reflective judgment born of our desire to see universals within given particulars––whether it is in our art, in society, or ourselves we intrinsically and continually seek that unknown universal. Immanuel Kant tells us this universal is the human encounter known as pleasure, and this pleasure does not arise out of mere sensation, but reflection. Remembering that everything we see is reflected light brings light’s power to sculpt and reveal to the center of this search for pleasure, connection and ultimately ourselves.
