Jim Campbell's lighting art is composed of a series of LED lights that breaks down imagery into simple pixels. While there is a lot of technology available to make artwork as hyper-realistic and as high quality as possible, the these works go in the complete opposite direction.
Works like 'Light Topography Wave' and 'Commuters' feature a series of lit-up dots that simplify the forms of the human body. In these two artworks, the silhouettes of people are visible, but hazy as they move across the low-definition surfaces. Unlike a crisp, flat TV screen, Campbell's artwork is presented on surfaces that have various changes in depth, which adds even more interest to the unique art pieces.
