Drawing on the sculptural qualities of a beam of laserlight, Laser Starship, a new artwork, projects high specification multiple rays of colorful laser light surrounding the center atrium glass globe of the C.H. Wright Museum of African American History. The artwork comments on elements of Afro futurism for a site specific laser ‘mothership’ in Detroit.
