About the project:

Artists share light to send a message of unity and hope.

During the month of May, artworks will be illuminated in windows around the world.

With cultural spaces closed, LIGHT WINDOWS is an exhibition created by artists at home and by galleries illuminating work through their windows.

Each art window offers inspiration to passers-by.

Light has the ability to reach out while we isolate within cities.  While many places have been boarded up these projects are beacons of inspiration.  LIGHT WINDOWS brings art to hyper-local audiences as well as forging an international community.

The project continues to grow as a gesture of unity across closed borders.

LIGHT WINDOWS is an exhibition for neighbors, a thank you to essential workers, and a tribute to those who we have lost to COVID-19.  Explore the map of artworks, tune in for the International Day of Light live streams, and get creative lighting up your window on May 16.

Statement for Sarah`s Song installation

The Drifting Consciousness: 

Imagining how the seaweeds floating freely under the sea 

Just like neurons in our brain

Transmitting information and controlling our actions 

Memories came back again and they were just so close to me 

I let myself drift into self-talks and try to record those tiny levitating senses

By translating my emotion and sensation into sounds and animated visuals I reconnect with me in a kind of subtle way

How seaweedious!
