Interactive Art

BY JEN LEWIN
@ VOL 23 ON AUG 07, 2014

For the last 15 years Jen Lewin has been creating large, immersive, interactive art pieces for the public...including interactive sound and light sculptures that inspire people into play, to woven fiber video curtains that reflect movement, or giant, robotic, ethereal moths that dance based on human touch. She brings an organic, feminine quality to her electronic work that leaves viewers enchanted and surprised. As a trained architect, Lewin’s pieces are often the scale of buildings and rooms. She creates experiences and environments that are both part of, and integrated into, a physical space.
