Spartanburg’s winning public art project, Seeing Spartanburg in a New Light, brings nine temporary art installations to public spaces in city neighborhoods beginning in October 2016.  In late Fall 2015 artist Erwin Redl began collaborating with the city’s police department and ten selected neighborhood associations to design and develop LED light installations that would transform open spaces and create safer, more vibrant neighborhoods.

 

Born in Austria in 1963, Erwin Redl finished his studies at the Vienna Music Academy with two degrees, a BA in Composition (1990) and BA in Electronic Music (1991). He was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship for graduate studies in computer art at the School of Visual Arts, in New York City (MFA 1995). Redl investigates the process of “reverse engineering” by (re-)translating the abstract aesthetic language of virtual reality and 3D computer modeling into architectural environments by means of large-scale light installations.

 

The Trolley will travel to each site and allow visitors to step off the Trolley to spend five minutes at each site.  Some sites are only visible from the Trolley however some sites like Video Village you will want to stop and watch for a few minutes. Total trip is 90 minutes.  No food or beverages are allowed on the Trolley.  Audio Tours are available via www.seeingspartanburg.com
