Lumonics Immersed is a total art installation which takes place in our warehouse in Denver. It consists of the late Dorothy and Mel Tanner‘s mesmerizing light sculptures, and lasers, special effects, and original music and video created by Dorothy Tanner and Marc Billard. Lumonics is one of the first and longest-running light art projects in the U.S., originating in 1966. The Tanners, among the light sculpture pioneers, first began presenting their highly-acclaimed light and sound experiences for the public beginning in 1969 in Miami. A writer for The Miami Herald described it as "one of the most unusual yet beautiful experiences in the world of art". The intention of Lumonics has always been to bring the audience into a state of comfort and expanded awareness. While we cannot duplicate the one-of-a- kind analog live projection of the Tanners, we use imagery and video based on those performances to recreate that vibe, 50+ years on. It is the desire of the remaining members of Lumonics to continue to honor the Tanners and their contribution to light art, and with their inspiration, further the immersive experience.
