Lantern Festival

In conjunction with Bown's Year of China, Prof. Paul Myoda's spring semester sculpture studio produced this large-scale light installation inspired by the annual lantern festivals celebrated across China. Each of the 15 students created and produced their own original lantern design.  A group of engineering students led by Prof. Rashid Zia designed and built LED circuits for each sculpture. Programmed to reference the fluttering firelight of traditional Chinese lanterns, over 300 sculptures blanketed the facade of the Granoff Center for one night only.
