Feast your eyes on a Mosaic of Light.
Discovery Green will feature its next large-scale art installation this November, and it’s asking Houstonians for their input. From now until July 15, Houstonians can submit their ideas to the organization to play a role on how this incandescent installation is imagined this fall. [Featured image: @discoverygreen]
The installation will be a piece by HYBYCOZO, a design studio headed by Serge Beaulieu and Yelena Filipchuk. Their artwork involves intricately detailed, laser-cut geometric shapes creating dazzling patterns of light and shadow. This fall, the studio will take its inspiration from local Houstonians in order to convey the artistic diversity the city has to offer.
“A mosaic consists of a combination of diverse elements that make a coherent whole,” writes Discovery Green on its website. “We can’t think of a better metaphor for Houston.”
To spark ideas, Discovery Green asks Houstonians to contemplate what comes to mind when picturing the city of Houston.
“Do you imagine the downtown skyline or the outline of a grackle? Do you think of the steel beams of the Astrodome or a garden full of azaleas?”
In short: “What does Houston look like to you?”
Discovery Green is accepting submissions from now until July 15. You can submit your ideas through their webpage, or on social media using the hashtag #mosaicoflight. Photos inclusions are encouraged!
