Scope, 1990

Robert Teeple
(American, born 1941)

Location: Manson High School, Manson

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Scope is part of artist Robert Teeple's series of electronic sculptures. Featuring a grid of 256 LED lights, the viewer activates the sculpture using an on/off switch. The light grid then displays one of a sequence of 32 patterns programmed by the artist.

Robert Teeple created this series for Multiples: The Sciences and Art (1991), an exhibition of ten microcollections commissioned to tour Washington State school districts. The microcollections offer different perspectives of ten artists exploring ideas and issues related to science, and ask students to re-consider assumed and widely accepted aspects of science.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Multiples: The Sciences and Art Collection.
