Grimanesa Amoros Installations with lights

Amoros was born in Lima Peru in 1962 but now lives in New York City. In every sculpture Amoros uses a combination of sculpture, video and lighting. Every sculpture is site specific as any installation piece is. She picks her sites by the architecture and how the site impacts the community. She also is a photographer, paints, and draws.

The lights, colors, and simplicity is what drew me to Amoros. In a simple Google images search her sculpture stood out to me more than the other installation pieces.
