Art Exhibit Opening
Design Philadelphia: Lyn Godley's "Behind the Veil"
“Behind the Veil is a new series composed
by layering multiple photographs of particular themes. My drawings are a multi
level exploration. I use a variety of medium for the dimensional quality it
offers. I begin with digital photography, manipulating the image in saturation
levels and pixelation. I then digitally print the images on heavy watercolor
paper and draw upon it in charcoal and pastels. I love the depth it creates and
the contrast between the digitally printed image and the charcoal markings; it
is the contrast of the artist’s markings over time. The drawings are then
pierced with hundreds of tiny holes, through which fiber optic cables are
threaded and trimmed. Bundles of the cables are attached to LEDs using Arduino
micro-computing behind the drawings to illuminate the fiber optics.” – Lyn Godley
Please join us for
an opening reception on Tuesday, October 14 from 5:30-7pm to open Lyn Godley’s

exhibit will be on view through the end of December 2014, in IHP’s East Alcove on
the Main Level.
