Pittsburgh-based multi-media artist Ian Brill’s work combines light, sound, and technology into an interactive experience for the viewer. Brill creates his installations out of polystyrene (corrugated plastic sheeting) and uses light and sound to amplify the experience. Brill’s installations are part of a series called Transmission. Begun in 2010, it explores architectural, interactive, and programmatic technology. His research has led to constructions for gallery exhibitions, festivals and staging contexts.
Storm is built from modular units, cut offsite and constructed at the Museum. Using computers to control colored LED lights and sound cues, Brill programs the experience on site. Storm is designed to mimic the unique shape and architectural elements of the McCain Gallery and transform it.
Ian Brill lives and works in Pittsburgh. He holds a BA in Studio Art from the University of Pittsburgh and an MFA in New Media from Penn State University. His work has been exhibited at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Unicorn Meat (NYC), the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, The Warhol Museum and in University Park, PA.
