Lumia: Thomas Wilfred and the Art of Light

Lumia: Thomas Wilfred and the Art of Light reveals this groundbreaking artist and his spellbinding light compositions for the first time in nearly fifty years. As early as 1919, Wilfred began experimenting with light as his primary artistic medium, developing a new art form of sophisticated kinetic sculptures that project moving images, which he referred to collectively as lumia. Presented in their original form, the resulting compositions display ever-changing colored forms against a black background, like an aurora borealis emerging from and disappearing into the night sky. Lumia restores this avant-garde artist to his rightful place at the forefront of kinetic and light art.
