ALFRED, NY – Alfred University’s School of Art and Design will host Luftwerk, the artistic collaboration of Petra Bachmaier and Sean Gallero, as artist-in-residence from Feb. 3-8.

Luftwerk explores light, color, and perception in immersive, experience-based installations. Focused on the context of a site for each project, Luftwerk applies its own interpretive layer, integrating the physical structure, historical context, and embedded information into each piece.

Since its founding in 2007, Luftwerk has amassed a significant body of work ranging from site-specific installations to experimental projects that interpret data. In each project collaborators Bachmaier and Gallero explore their interest in the abilities of how light and color can be utilized to shift perception and enhance experience.

Luftwerk will be located at the Institute for electronic Arts in Harder Hall and will be sponsored by the Institute for Electronic Arts/Schein-Joseph Endowment.
