Eyebeam is definitely one of those places that I love going to because I know I will always be pleasantly surprised by something I experience. This piece, one of the art + technology babies that’s part of their Unethered exhibit, is one of those things.

Jean Baptiste Huynh’s Twilight photographs at Sonnabend gallery were truly mesmerizing. The close study of natural color and its gradiations are perfectly captured in his large scale photographs. Each photograph was taken at varying extremes of the northern and southern hemispheres, which also gives many of us the chance to somewhat experience the aura of these far places. The other photographs of Meteorites and Mirrors, didn’t seem to capture this same feeling.
