Explosive Light-Based Installations by Adela Andea

The Romanian-born artist, who is based in Houston, uses lighting technology with a focus on LED light - for vibrant installations that recreate scenes from nature in the age of climate change.

Andea looks to bioluminescent sea life, melting icebergs, and cosmological events to shape the composition and meaning of her large-scale installations.

The pieces appears as lit explosions, with LED lights, magnifying lenses, and flex neon springing outwards in a blend of chaos and control.

"The numerous transitions in my life made me think about the enormous capability of people to adapt to situations and even more, search for the new possibilities of personal development through inquisitive experiences. I strive for my art to vindicate the malign consequences of technology on the environment and inspire new exciting ways to infuse technology."
