Media artist James Clar explores the effects of media and technology on our perceptions of culture and identity. “What I’m trying to do is pull these pixels out of the screen and into our physical reality.

He is a new voice in a long line of light-focused artists, from Dan Flavin to Olafur Eliasson.
