Known for his manipulations of light and space, Aten Reign transforms the Guggenheim museum in New York City into a chromatically luminous area that will take anyone's breath away. It utilizes the ringed ceiling of the Guggenheim to make it more mesmerizing.

His first art installation in New York since 1980, Aten Reign adds to his already impressive and celebrated portfolio. Interestingly, it uses both daylight and LED light to create the visually striking sight. It is the authenticity of the first that will capivate people the most. Some may even walk away from the Aten Reign installation thinking they just visited an alien planet with skies that bleed purple, blue and red.
