Sub-Basement Artist Studios invites you to the opening reception of new-media artist Daniel Conrad’s solo exhibition “Luminous Liminality”. Conrad’s body of work is the culmination of 30 years of creative thought and experimentation. By combining his working knowledge of optics and art theory with electronic circuitry, Dan Conrad has developed the innovative but largely unexplored medium of light painting. His technique of rigorous wiring of colorful LED lights and calculated placing of dimmers and diffusing screens creates mesmerizing color-field paintings and interactive light-experiences that inspire conceptually and visually.

This year’s featured poem is “Birds Like Ballistic Missiles”, written by Pantea Amin Tofangchi. Tofangchi, an Iranian-American poet, currently teaches writing and graphic design at the University of Baltimore. “Birds Like Ballistic Missiles” presents poetry as an act of cultural, domestic and psychological assimilation during wartime. The title’s simile and lines are provocative in their ubiquity.
