Leo Villareal, Light Matrix, art installation is made up of 8,260 LEDs, encased in channels, spans 29 metres and runs across three floors of the ASB Waterfront Theatre. Villareal spent time at the theatre programming algorithms to generate the LED sequences and describes the sculpture as a work to be explored. For Villareal, the ability of an artwork to connect people and draw them together is a vital part of public art. His art is now recognised as some of the most inspiring light works of his generation.

The public is welcome to come inside, take time with the artwork when the theatre is open. With the glazed façade the artwork is also viewable when the theatre is closed. A captivating installation for all ages, head to the ASB Waterfront Theatre this May to check it out.
