lightStruct is all about a heightened sense of placemaking, synthesizing digital art and architecture into one-of-a-kind projection exhibitions. Clients suggest a place or local project, lightStruct brings the light with 10×10 (10 artworks x 10 projectors). Modular at its core, lightStruct mounts exhibits in any space. A veritable lumberyard of options, 10×10 might start as 2×4 (2 projectors and 4 artists), adaptable to an evolving built environment.
lightStruct is a living catalog of immersive experiences. We maintain a comprehensive collaborative style (client, curator, artists) as the overlay to an ever-changing space, nearly limitless and inclusive of many voices. lightStruct’s team manages a project by walking the client through conceptual visualization to full production. In addition, lightStruct’s iterative postmortems maintain 10×10’s experimental essence, defending against the banal and to further expand the footprint to delight and enchant. lightStruct frames digital art to be seen, heard and discussed. 10×10 series aims to be part of a larger, tangible discourse that generates connection between and among people, form and idea; it’s an intimate immersive exhibition of memorable light art.
lightStuct was founded by Brett Phares, an artist and curator working in immersive art and the built environment. With 20+ years in interactive media, he has created innovative projects for both startups and international brands. He has exhibited internationally, and cofounded the annual immersive art festival Digital Graffiti, named by Smithsonian Magazine as one of top five immersive art experiences in the world.
