Goggleworks Center for the Arts
The GoggleWorks’ “Thought Process” proposal and installation was a major collaboration between lighting designer Lyn Godley, the Goggleworks Center for the Arts, ”Our City Reading”, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Union, and Kutztown University. 7100 programmable LEDs continuously “draw” across the facade of the historic building. Working with Colorkinetics technology, Godley designed, programmed and oversaw the installation of the artwork. Designed originally as a canvas to teach from, the programmable lights can be used to design new light shows as a means of expressing the creativity that takes place behind the warehouse’s facade. Godley addressed each of the 7100 LEDs and designed the light shows, then worked with Kutztown University students mapping them out on the windows across the facade. Installation of the lights and hardware was done by the local IBEW. The project was funded by Albert Boscov + “Our City Reading”, it came in on time and below budget.
