Inside Breathing Lights

Friday, September 9th, 2016

Join us for a behind the scenes look at one of the region’s most ambitious public art projects ever, Breathing Lights, which will illuminate hundreds of vacant homes in Albany, Schenectady and Troy in fall 2016. Learn about the technology and concepts behind the lighting effect, how the project was sited and documented, and how it connects with neighborhoods across the region.

This October and November, Breathing Lights will illuminate the windows of hundreds of vacant buildings in Albany, Schenectady and Troy. Warm light will fill each window with a diffuse glow that mimics the gentle rhythm of human breathing. Concentrated in neighborhoods with high levels of vacancy, Breathing Lights will transform abandoned structures from pockets of shadows into places of warmth. The Arts Center’s vacant upper floor windows will also be illuminated as part of the project.
