Light Pods

2013, Wood and light bulbs,19"w x 48"h x 12"d; 17"w x 35"h x 9"d

This work is inspired by our need to surround ourselves with material goods to define our identity and bring us comfort. With the most simple gesture, these pods become living creatures that can give light and companionship to a dark room. The multiple facets on the wooden bodies become activated by the light as do the many facets of our personal identity when they are allowed to be accessed.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
