German/Swiss artist Florian Dombois will light up the sky on the Boston University campus through the installation of uboc No. 1 & stuVi2, a temporary, site-specific artwork for TransCultural Exchange’s 2013 Conference Engaging Minds: International Opportunities in the Arts — October 10–13, 2013. UBOC NO. 1 & STUVI2 PUBLIC ART INSTALLATION FOR TRANSCULTURAL EXCHANGE’S 2013 ENGAGING MINDS CONFERENCE DATES: THURSDAY, OCTOBER 10 – SUNDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2013 ARTIST: FLORIAN DOMBOIS VIEWING TIMES: DUSK TO 2AM uboc No. 2 & stuVi2 will stretch across the Boston skyline from October 10th to the 13th from dusk to 2am. It will consist of a highly visible red laser, used to connect two towers, Boston University’s School of Law — Josep Lluis Sert’s modernist icon, nicknamed by the students as the ugliest building on campus (uboc No. 1) — and the new dormitory, Student Village 2 (StuVi2). The laser will also function as a range finder, which will measure the distance — the architectural and geophysical dialog — between the two, and in real time, project their movements onto a small screen.
