Spectral Visions

Jason Riekkoff's avatar Jason Riekkoff

Spectral Visions is a spectral art project which works with an internal lighting system. This gives the artwork the illusion of movement and change over time as different wavelengths of light and patterns of color will cause different details to emerge from within this mixed media artwork. An artist designed micro controller allows the artist to remake the lighting sequences to work with the environment or even become interactive through sensors. This project will consist of a central acrylic painting in an elaborate string art frame. Best viewed in darkness, my artwork takes on a rainbow-like appearance in daylight. It includes fluorescent and phosphorescent elements that will glow and only appear in darkness. I create my artwork for stages and music venues, I travel year round to help facilitate environments of exploration and expanded consciousness.
