Clouds, ocean waves, blades of grass moved by the wind, the slowly changing light in the desert. I’ve always been fascinated with the effect that observing these impersonal natural phenomena has on my sense of self. It is this shift in the relationship of subject and object that I’m trying to evoke with my work. Can this experience be facilitated through a constructed environment? 

A technical note regarding the image material on this site: Lumia projections are created by the interaction of light and irregular shaped optical components, accounting for their natural and organic look. No software rendering techniques are used. Due to the high contrast ratio and color saturation of laser lumia projections, it is virtually impossible to convey the actual appearance in photo or video. Please contact me to arrange for a private viewing session in the Los Angeles area.

Born 1967, Ulrich holds a Ph.D. in physics from the university of Bochum, Germany. He relocated to Los Angeles in 1997. Attending the Burning Man festival in 1999 inspired him to use his knowledge of optics and lasers to create light installations.
