High Desert Test Site-2

Super-bright LEDs outine a ridge in the hills outside of Joshua Tree

"Hillside as Darkness" - this installation was part of the second High Desert Test Sites. The custom solar-powered LED lighting units were mounted along a descending ridgeline on Bureau of Land Management land north of the park. In an environment where night can be very disorienting without a clear sense of the terrain, the installation sought to reveal the presence of the muscular rocky hills that otherwise flattened into dark outlines after the sun set.
