A new luminous art installation is popping up at Dix Park from Monday, July 24 to Monday, Aug. 28. Tessellate, an immersive project by artist Oliver Lewis, plays with light and shadows.
Park visitors will be able to spin dials on sculptures which will bring shadows and the 1,000-sqft artwork to life.
A combination of art and science, Lewis uses digital technologies such as 3D printing, laser cutting, robotics, and traditional art forms in his work.
SEEK Raleigh is leading this experimental public art project — which will be located near the grove of trees beside Flowers Cottage — with support from Raleigh Arts, Dix Park, and Dix Park Conservancy.
Pro tip: The free installation will be most visible during the early evening.
