Gold holds symbolic meaning in many of the world’s major religions. From the Inca's belief that gold was the sun's sweat to the Magi presenting newborn Christ with gifts of gold, the element's associations with the divine are inescapable and universal. UNIVERSE 2 explores this association by capturing a moment of bursting creation in gilded eternity from Peru.

Grimanesa Amoros is an interdisciplinary light artist creating site specific monumental sculptures. Her works' unique relationship to technology engages viewers in dialogue with cultural legacies, architecture and the surrounding community.
