About

We are Rainbow Lightning, an artist collaborative from Ohio.

Population: 2

We first met in 2008 and have been working and playing ever since. Our collective backgrounds include textiles, metals, ceramics, furniture making, upholstery, installation, painting, drawing performance and video.

We are agents of materials, seeking precise alchemy. We are preservationists of familiarity! We seek a behavioral basis in design aiming to define socially constructed space.

If the perceived environment in a container for the body, social spaces then begin to be just a collection of personal spaces…islands of individuality in a sea of communal living.

We take clues from the social constructs of public space and it’s effect on people to demonstrate the endless permutations and combinations of material, environment, memory and meaning.

The objective goal of our work is to arouse questions of personal identity through the summoning of nostalgia. Our installations become sweeping sermons to memory and loss.
