Library Street Collective and real estate company Bedrock Detroit worked with light artist Christopher Bauder and musician Kangding Ray on a new experiential exhibition in the Motor City. Entitled SKALAR: Reflections on Light and Sound, the kinetic art show kicked off late last month during legendary techno festival, Movement, as a celebration of the city’s rich electronic music heritage.

SKALAR has previously exhibited across the world in Berlin, Zurich, Mexico City, Amsterdam, and Riyadh, but is showing for the first time in the United States. The audiovisual event aims to illuminate the abstract nature of human emotion through an elaborate interplay between light and sound. “It reminds us that our experiences, though internal, are no less real.” said Kangding Ray. “Through the fusion of light and sound, SKALAR seeks to evoke pure synesthesia, blurring the boundaries between sensory experiences.”

The project was conceptually inspired by professor Robert Plutchik’s psychoevolutionary theory of eight primary emotions within humans and animals, from anger, fear, sadness and disgust to surprise, anticipation, trust, and joy. At times chaotic and other times soothing and ethereal, SKALAR elicits the most primitive emotions through a truly sensorial experience.

For those in Detroit, the exhibition will be on view until July 28, 2024. Admission is free, but guests will have to reserve their spot in advance at the gallery’s website.
