Light art.

At the San Jose Art Museum. The installation -- full of undulating lights -- is by Jennifer Steinkamp. I loved taking photos here, because of the way people would position themselves within the frame and become part of the art, something I'm sure Steinkamp intends.

No people in this one, but I thought it was really cool:

Looks great. Steinkamp did a smaller-scale piece some years ago at the art gallery of my alma mater, Rice University. It was a great piece. Also, unless I'm mistaken, the Rice Gallery is the only university art gallery that is devoted to installation work. I thought you might find that of interest.

Really gorgeous. The best art is that which is calming and electrifying at the same time.

Fun pictures, much more interesting than the exhibition.
