Field Condition is a hyper-sensory art exhibition which centers around a body of ephemeral, immersive light sculptures by artist and designer Patrick Ethen. Ethen uses light as a medium to explore emergent behavior, using meticulously wired arrays of electronics to build installations which envelop the viewer in a meditative, immersive aura which feels simultaneously human and artificial. Describing his practice as a sort of “pseudo-spiritual techno-futurism,” Ethen’s work is a commentary on the role of technology and its influence on society. Presented by PLAYGROUND DETROIT on September 7th during Detroit Month of Design.
Patrick Ethen is a light artist and designer, known for installations which explore the production of emergent behavior, the relationship between analog and digital systems, and the role of the human hand in a digital age.
