From Far East to Deep South.
From the I Ching to Dr Martin Luther King.
From Water Cube to Department Store.
Jennifer Wen Ma's work is international, her inspiration global and her next stop is Edgewood Avenue, in Atlanta’s Historic Old Fourth Ward.
Nature & Man in Rhapsody of Light (pictured here) by Jennifer Wen Ma is an installation at the Beijing Olympic Aquatics Center (aka the Water Cube). A collaboration between Ma and lighting designer, Zheng Jianwei, that uses a computer program to translate the words of the I Ching and the collective mood of the Chinese people via the emoticons they use on social media, to create a real-time light display in the bubbles of the building’s exterior.
Ma’s latest project, Bending the Arc, again uses the exterior of a building - this time the Department Store (aka Erosol), and is inspired by the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. It will be created with the real-time voices of the Flux Night audience - here in Atlanta on November 7th. That's right - you help make it happen. Don't miss out! FLUX NIGHT 2015: DREAM
