Susan Narduli
Light Wash/7
2007


Project Area:  Little Tokyo
Project:  Hikari
Project Location:  375 E. 2nd Street
Project Type:  Developer Initiated

Description:

Set into the overhang of the mixed-use Hikari along 2nd Street and Central Avenue, the linear fluorescent tubes of Light Wash/7 immerse the building’s first floor solid surfaces and sidewalk with vibrant colors during the evening. Through this light installation, artist Susan Narduli creates a contemporary 24-hour urban environment in Little Tokyo. Light Wash/7 mimics the light and movement of cars driving down the street and “captures” the shadows of passing figures against a theatrical backdrop of the colorfully lit building façade. Narduli’s light installation also dramatically showcases the public’s contribution to the area’s night life. From a distance, Light Wash/7 creates an illusion as the Hikari appears to hover above the sidewalk.
