Media artist James Clar explores the effects of media and technology on our perceptions of culture and identity. “What I’m trying to do is pull these pixels out of the screen and into our physical reality. Then they can exist not as a flat 2D surface, but as a physical object that interacts with the real environment they are placed in.” Clar's manipulations of light have included a meticulous composition of 1000 individually controlled LEDs forming a cube. He is a new voice in a long line of light-focused artists, from Dan Flavin to Olafur Eliasson.
