Description:

What makes the Winter Quarter so hard at the University of Chicago is that the days are short and darkness comes early. Light Fantastic aims to illuminate – both symbolically and literally – the dark winter months. This campus-wide installation of twenty sculptures/structures/garden follies made entirely from bamboo poles and holiday lights – much like giant TinkerToys – will be designed and built by UChicago Undergraduates.

Sound Fantastic is a sound installation that will accompany a number of the Light Fantastic installations, led by composers Ted Moore and Hunter Brown. Electronic compositions of soothing drone music is sure to melt the winter darkness away.

Notes:

This event is the culmination of the Light Fantastic project.
