VANCOUVER – Joel Berman, a Vancouver-based artist and founder of Joel Berman Glass Studios, will be exhibiting his award-winning design “Heat” at Illuminate Yaletown. Part of Vancouver’s new City and Slope festival, Illuminate Yaletown, is a free winter party in Yaletown that features contemporary light art installations. Illuminate Yaletown will be held February 10-11 along Hamilton and Mainland Streets. Once the sun sets, the Yaletown Heritage District will feature interactive, innovative, and interesting light art exhibits.
Yaletown restaurants and businesses will display unique art installations that combine elements of sculpture, light, mixed media and animation to illustrate Vancouver’s rich industrial history and environmental activism. Joel Berman’s Heat light fixture will be on display at the ex-Design House space located on the corner of Mainland and Helmcken.
Heat is a light sculpture for designed interiors. Fashioned from a solitary 2¼ inch-thick monolithic volume of acrylic resin cast in Berman's signature Arrigado texture, accented with brushed stainless steel hardware, and equipped with a high intensity LED light source, Heat is an expression of singularity. Like a slab of rippling water captured and frozen in time, hung vertically and lit from within, the sculpture glows with a cool inner radiance, which makes its name a playful contradiction. Heat is offered as a hanging light sculpture complete with polished acrylic panel, LED light source, stainless steel case, and associated hardware. Custom sizes are available to suit any designed interior space. Heat has captured several design industry accolades including a Best of NeoCon Gold Award. NeoCon is North America’s premier design market event for architecture and interior design professionals.
