Born in the park three summers ago, the Lusio light and sound event bloomed in Volunteer Park Friday night before fading away — again — until next year.
The annual free night of art and music drew what appeared to be its largest crowd yet. The word interactive gets abused so much that it means nearly the opposite but at Lusio, the term pays off:
Lusio is meant to be playfully experienced in 2-3 hours and is FREE family-friendly, open to all, and for one night only. Be prepared to wander and explore the corners of the park to find the art living under trees and in the gardens. Lusio is fully interactive, family friendly, community driven event so participation is key!
2018 works included S. Clan’s “The Light Harvest” — a “light-harvesting site is home to a field of colored lights, a light processing plant, and a cluster of domestic dwellings” — Trina Cooper’s “Compassion Dilation Machine,” and “Cocoon,” textile lights blooming from beneath Volunteer Park’s trees by Kelly Fleek.

#Repost @skevajames ・・・ Pyramid Scheme at Lusio: a Night to Awaken 2018. Its an installation that is playable like a game. And it cheats. Control panels have LED lights that play patterns. Players repeat the patterns by touching metal objects, and try to move their graphic light up the ‘pyramid’. @lusiolights @mad_mapper #projectionmapping #processing3 #nodal #madmapper #vdmx #lightart #installationart #pyramid #lusiolight #lusiolights #lusioanighttoawaken #lusio #art #interactive #volunteerpark #seattle
