"...the Greek word for 'wolf,' lukos, is so close to the word 'light', leukos,
that it has often been mistaken in translation."
- Barry Lopez, oF wOLVES AND MEN (1978)
LED strip lights, typically decorative, controllable and predictable, are reimagined and rewilded as artworks. They are coded to be unpredictable, ground-moving beings - conceptual red wolves, who activate the spaces between contemporary galleries.
They sprint past an overlook, peer down a staircase, and run through the hallways. Each visitor's experience with the Leukos Lukos is an uncontrolled and unique encounter.
These are not artworks that only represent animals. They are artworks that move as animals ... appearing, walking, running, stopping, circling, surrounding, and disappearing.
