Controllers, 2023, engraved acrylic sheet, acrylic paint, magnets, remote controllable led lights, attachments.

These small light shows feature remote controlled smart LED’s in laser engraved boxes affixed to the city plinths, lightpoles, and bridges with rare earth magnets. Different arrangements of the lights were installed around central Denver over a period of 3 days and 3 nights. The public seemed to mostly accept these mysterious apparatai which have no clear purpose, the boxes might have intimated a technological mystery that might dismissed as civic infrastructure. Possibly they seemed as small glimpses into the future, anticipations of some next social control: a block chain or materialized cloud; a surveilance device or an intermediary between us and the network, matters that are perhaps none of our business or beyond our expertise.
