Main festival grounds
Amber and Jim Kempthorn, main stage décor
This father-daughter duo will enliven Brite’s main stage with northern lights-inspired shapes and themes. Lights are courtesy of GE Lighting.
Fire and Ice is an art performance piece by the Rust Belt Monster Collective in which an entire mural is created in front of a live audience without prior planning. The artists are directly influenced as they paint by feedback from the crowd, environment, and each other. As a special event for Brite Winter, the RBMC will make their mural glow using black light and fluorescent paint.
Make-and-take lights. Bring some brite-ness home with you.

Twinkling Tricycle Tour of Enchantment. The name of the piece says it all, really. Lights courtesy of GE Lighting.
Foundation in Digital Synthesis, Cleveland Institute of Art advised by Barbara Chira
CIA students are exhibiting 24-30 lanterns, each one constructed with a full-color digital print on vellum. The image on each lantern is a mash-up and just as in mash-up music, each student appropriated imagery from at least two outside sources and re-presented it in a unique and original way. Each image expresses some “antonym” pair of words or concepts that are different from, but related to, one another – in fact, one cannot exist without the other: This-That, Me-You, Now-Then, Here-There.

Loren Naji Studios
Cleveland Institute of Art faculty member and 2011 Guggenheim Fellow kasumi collaborates with multimedia specialist Kevin Jackson on Quadrascope.
Originally created for The Cleveland Play House’s Fusion Fest in collaboration with The Cleveland Orchestra, Kasumi’s experimental film Quadrascope literally takes on new dimensions by way of Kevin Jackson’s 3D mapping technology. Quadrascope mimics the currents of our unconscious thoughts, moving in uncanny and bizarre directions towards unknown – and vividly memorable – realms.
