In her lecture, Lumia: Thomas Wilfred and the Origins of Time-Based Media in Modern Art, Keely Orgeman will focus on the work of the Danish-American artist Thomas Wilfred, who built an international reputation in the first half of the twentieth century as the pioneer of a new art form, which he called lumia. Wilfred invented sophisticated analog “instruments” that produce brilliantly colored displays, realizing a fusion of modernist abstraction and pre-digital technology. My talk considers at the formal and conceptual affinities between lumia and the wide-ranging work of Wilfred’s contemporaries, from other early kinetic-light objects, such as Stanton Macdonald-Wright’s Synchrome
