Mosaic of Light by HYBYCOZO

Mosaic of Light by HYBYCOZO
When

November 12, 2021 - February 27, 2022

This winter, discover new ways of seeing shape, light and shadow with the immersive art experience: Mosaic of Light by artist collective HYBYCOZO at Discovery Green that will be placed along the Brown Promenade, or hung from the voluminous oak trees, and illuminated from within at night. 
 
During the day the sculptures are gold jewels, which glisten in the sunlight.
At dusk and beyond, the glowing structures create light, and dancing shadows give them an expansive presence that interacts with visitors and the surrounding environment.
 
The installation includes two locally oriented pieces designed with imagery from Houstonians’ answers to the question: What shapes evoke Houston? Replies included everything from grackles to SLAB cars and, of course, freeways. HYBYCOZO chose magnolias, the Texas star, the Mexican art of papel picado and the geometry of the city’s architecture. 
 
Visitors will find many surprises hidden in the light and shadows of the pieces.
A full schedule of related programming and activations, including weekly music events and workshops, is made possible by PNC Bank.
