I caution my students that artist will take over your job if you are not strong in your convictions....In the mean time I totally applaud this project by artist Amy Yoes-The Kitchen Project executed in New York-the client commissioned her to make a functional kitchen AND like a film work she had done years prior. Yoes made the exuberant moves that she has been getting acclaim for and then carefully choreographed the LED lighting to move and change constantly. There are so many things she has turned on her head with this work. Coming from someone who has done MANY kitchen renovations.... One the project moves beyond the kitchen as a status symbol, the piece is an idea and it functions, the piece is more than a static illustration of movement the lighting makes movement.
