Son et Lumière is an exhibition of eight artists who work with the basic elements of sound and/or light to create immersive experiences that dazzle the senses and stimulate the mind. Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla, Bruce Bemis, Ann Lislegaard, Michael Mittelman, Mark Hansen and Ben Rubin, and Jessica Rylan create large-scale installations that use LED screens, film projections, hidden cameras, sub-sonic and directional speakers, and simple light bulbs. In each, the elements are recoded in some way, so that the viewer encounters the unexpected.
