KEN HACKE ARTS
I've always been drawn to repeating patterns, the sacred geometry found in nature and especially hexagons. This installation allows the audience to see themselves reflected in art as a piece of the pattern of life.
A lot of math went into creating this piece. Each of the frameworks was computer-modeled, divided into segments and then generated using a 3D printer. The acrylic glass was then treated with aluminum oxide to create the two-way mirror effect; and finally laser-cut into precise segments. The lighting consists of nearly 2000 LED lights mapped, programmed and reflected, both digitally and optically, to turn simple patterns into a complex light show.
