Called Ocean of Light: Submergence, it’s an interactive, digital media piece that fills an entire gallery. It’s the work of Squidsoup, an artist collective based in the United Kingdom.
Explore Submergence from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday, May 19, as Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art presents its Summer Opening Celebration. The piece is one of three exhibitions on view that evening.
While you’re there, check out Electro-Symbio Phonics, an iconic mixed-media sculpture by Nam June Paik, which grounds an exhibition titled “I’m Sorry But It’s Hard to Imagine.” Finally, there’s “[dis]functional: Products of Conceptual Design,” a show that considers notions of what makes good design. Artists and curators will be on hand to talk art and design with visitors that night.
You’d need thousands of night lights to create anything even approximating the newest light-based art installation at Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, 7374 East Second Street.
