jen lewin installs reflect, an interactive light installation at brooklyn's domino park

following the international recognition for its innovative social distancing circles, brooklyn’s domino park has unveiled another safe and socially distanced outdoor public installation. envisioned by american new media artist jen lewin and titled reflect, the immersive, multi-sensory experience draws from the dynamic patterns created by organic systems found in nature. covering 2,400 square feet, the sculpture consists of three concentric rings, each made up of interactive platforms that respond to visitors’ steps, triggering splashes of light that result in ever-changing compositions. the installation aims to encourage new yorkers to take a break, reflect, discover and inspire connection as the city enters a new era.

reflect by jen lewin is part of the larger 15,000 square foot work cosmos, first presented in tokyo in 2020. during the day, reflect’s glossy dichroic surface mirrors the sky and surrounding environment, creating a surreal space and eliciting a profoundly connective experience. during the night, the immersive sculpture animates and glows as viewers move across its ever-changing illuminated panels. the installation allows for multiple individuals to engage with the work simultaneously, while maintaining the required social distance.

‘I’m thrilled that reflect will make its american debut in my hometown of brooklyn at domino park, where I hope new yorkers will find a much-needed escape in the vibrant, playful nature of this work,’ said artist jen lewin. ‘reflect will continue to travel around the globe, bringing joy to adults and children alike during these extraordinary times.’

 

reflect is free and open to the public and launches on march 5, 2021. the immersive exhibit is open to park visitors between 8 a.m. EST and 10 p.m. EST every day.
