Working with large adjustable mirrors, holographic gyroscopes, human sized water prisms and lenses, he transforms beams of light into scattered patterns of spectral bliss. The gallery will be transformed into a place to explore the possibilities of optics and art, a place of discovery and whimsy, and to experience new ways of seeing. His first show, Spectrum I, took place in a large-scale metal fabrication shop in Brooklyn, NYC, and gave Bowring a new sense of scale for his light work. Bowring has returned to New York several times to explore new ways of presenting light and optics on a grand scale. In January 2015, he collaborated with George Delbario on Spectrum II, an analog color mapping onto an 80-foot tall bridge structure. Spectrum III will be a presentation of his continued explorations using the gallery space. Bowring's art is about discovery, energy, color, and the transient visual experience: a temporal gift of light science and light art to the public.
