Meet Jennifer Figg—an associate professor in the Department of Art+Design, Art History and Art Education—who has created installations for Baltimore's annual Light City festival.
The event features large-scale light installations, music, performances and innovation.
In 2016, she, Matthew McCormack and a crew of Towson University students collaborated on “Making Waves,” a permanent combined installation and performance that included a suspended glass sculpture with a changing light show triggered by a series of 24-inch, 3D-printed energy-harvesting kinetic light drums played by professional drummers.
“I love working with Towson students,” says the associate professor. “This was a really good opportunity to get them involved in a big, multifaceted project they could see develop from the ground up.”
In 2017, Figg and McCormack showed a five-minute looped video entitled, “Windmill Triptych” as part of On Demand, an exhibition of time-based digital content. The videos were looped on an LED screen on Pier 5 in the Inner Harbor.
