Podcast: Floor van de Velde on "Luminous Scores"

Podcast: Floor van de Velde on "Luminous Scores"

The Boston-based artists discusses her exhibit at the Madison Science Museum.

In her show Luminous Scores, on permanent display at the Madison Science Museum, artist Floor van de Velde uses video, sound, and optical illusions to try and make viewers question the act of perceiving. The show manages to pack a few immersive experiences into rather limited space. Visiting one installation, you're in a room filled with translucent orange discs hanging from the ceiling. In others, the viewer witnesses overlapping manipulations of different kinds of light, which challenges you to question what exactly you're seeing and how you are processing it.

For our first podcast episode of the year, van de Velde, who currently lives in Boston, joined me via Skype to discuss the show and what made her want to combine art with an exploration of the physics of light. Give our conversation a listen below.
