Selected portfolio:

Traveling SUN is a road trip and a site-spesific art project by IstadPacini ArtLab, 2012- 2016. The SUN is a circular light sculpture, 3 m in diameter, that shifts between a wide range of warm colors. To make the road trip, it was suspended above a flatbed trailer that was pulled by a flat bed truck. The generator that powers the SUN is in the back of the truck, allowing us to drive with the light on all the time.
