Uros is part of a series of light sculptures by Grimanesa Amorós. Made from LED nodes, diffusion material, vinyl, and a custom light sequence, the sculpture is Amorós’ interpretation of the floating Uros Islands in Puno, Peru, hand-made with totora reeds by the indigenous Uros.

Tribeca ISSEY MIYAKE, opened in 2001, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary as the site for the Miyake US headquarters and flagship store carrying all Issey Miyake collections. Featuring a titanium “intervention” or sculpture by Frank Gehry that winds its way through the space, tribeca ISSEY MIYAKE acts as a retail store, laboratory, and atelier; a place for new talent, the unexpected, and the excitement that lies within the power of creation.

Tribeca ISSEY MIYAKE is proud to present Uros, a lighting sculpture installation from a recent series of works by Peruvian artist Grimanesa Amorós. Uros will be unveiled on Thursday, December 15 and running through January 14th, 2012.
