‘Luxnoctis’ by visual artist Reuben Wu.
A collaboration between light artist Christopher Bauder and musician Kangding Ray, SKALAR (named after a psychoevolutionary theory about human perception and emotion by American psychologist Robert Plutchik, but you knew that) is an art installation that uses its suspended structure and pulsing rhythms to create an immersive live concert.
