Featuring work by:
Since the discovery of fire, we have found ways to control and interact with light. At this moment of awareness, fire sparked changes to our world, culture and arts through exploration, creativity, and experimentation. These gestures created new sparks and pathways of learning, perception and ways to live in our world. UMBC Spark is an art exhibition of diverse work using light in video projections and sculptural installation. Each of these artists look at light through multiple facets and how these facets spark fires to create change.
