About the Project

During Art Chicago 2003, Creative Time collaborated with the Häagen-Dazs Art of Pure Pleasure program to present MATRIX X by Erwin Redl. The latest in Redl’s MATRIX series, the Chicago installation consisted of three large-scale grids, featuring 27,000 multicolored LED lights.


Suspended from the vaulted ceiling of the Chicago Navy Piers, the three grids functioned as curtains holding together the spatial integrity of the exhibition hall, which was fragmented by numerous temporary gallery walls.
