Day & Night Projects is pleased to present Tallahassee-based artist Lucia Riffel’s latest exhibition, Interspaced With.
Interspaced With focuses on the gap between spatial sensation and physical reality—the intangible and infinite space that light, color, and perception travel through to fill its surroundings. Growing from the floor, this installation’s miniature landscapes and light-bending materials are bathed with projected video of an endless, eternal space. The animated light reflects and refracts from within the miniatures filling the air of the space, cast with shadows onto the walls and ceiling. The collapsing and expanding nature of the overlaying environments may displace viewers from their physical reality and into the meditative realm of the “in-between.”
Interspaced With will be on view at Day & Night Projects from August 9 through September 1. Gallery hours are 11am–5pm Fridays and Saturdays, or by appointment.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Lucia Riffel was born in Duluth, Minnesota, and grew up on the Iron Range in northern Minnesota.

Following undergraduate school, Riffel received a full-tuition scholarship to the Florida State University M.F.A. program in Tallahassee, Florida. Within her time at FSU, Riffel has exhibited work across the Southeast; played an essential role in the founding, co-directing, and management of contemporary art space SOUP experimental; and taught college-level digital art courses through Florida State University. Since her graduation in May 2018, she has continued to live and work in Tallahassee while exhibiting across the Southeast. Riffel works across many mediums in her interdisciplinary practice, but predominantly utilizes digital animation and sculptural installation to navigate the space between physical, psychological, and digital realms.
