Grimanesa Amorós

I conceptualize imagination as a heightened awareness of the world around me. As I navigate my surroundings, I make an effort to observe small details that might escape the casual observer. Imagination is a muscle that we have to train through continued exploration. I believe when we live our lives with this level of focus, we develop our senses and become more curious and open to the world at large.

Grimanesa Amorós is an interdisciplinary light artist creating site-specific monumental sculptures whose work’s unique relationship to technology engages viewers in dialogue with cultural legacies, architecture, and the surrounding community. She was a guest speaker at TEDGlobal 2014, a recipient of the ‘NEA Visual Arts Grants Fellowships 1993 ’, the ‘NEA Artist Travel Grant’, and has the distinction of being part of the ‘Art In Embassies Program of the U.S.’.
