"Lumia Scale #8"
1995
12" H x 19" W x 1" D
LEDs, electronics, software, mica, steel

"Lumia," was a term coined by Thomas Wilfred
early in the 20th century to describe a light
composition based on the theories of music. By
introducing the idea of a visual scale analogous 
to a musical scale, I attempted to do for Lumia
what the chromatic scale had done for western
music.

"Horus-Thehen Reified"
1993
46" H x 61" W x 1" D

Ancient Egyptians worshipped many forms
of Horus, Horus-Ra is one of the better
known; Horus-Thehen meant Horus, the 
"sparkling one." To "reify" means to 
"treat an abstraction as the real thing,
" raising the question of happens when
you treat the idea of an ancient god 
as real.

What could be more romantic and
