In conversation with Iker Gil
Light, color, and sound are primary elements in work by Luftwerk—the artistic collaborative of Petra Bachmaier (BFA 1999) and Sean Gallero (SAIC 1993–98). Luftwerk’s art installations use light to transform experiences of space and site. Their immersive artwork has exhibited at venues such as Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway in Boston, Chicago’s Millennium Park, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater in Pennsylvania, Mies van der Rohes’ Farnsworth House in Illinois, Chicago’s Garfield Park Conservatory, and more.
