Metro Times // Designer Scott Klinker brings this week’s selfie photo op to Detroit

Posted By Lee DeVito on Wed, Jan 8, 2020

For Structures of Light, a joint show from Cranbrook Academy of Art and Playground Detroit, artist and educator Scott Klinker uses new LED neon technology to transform a downtown Detroit space into a light-up wonderland — “like entering the space of a glowing, geometric line drawing,” according to the event curators. Should make a great selfie photo op.

Klinker is currently Designer-in-Residence at Cranbrook, where he received his MFA in 1996. Klinker led the product design program at the Kanazawa International Design Institute in Japan, where he founded his independent studio, Scott Klinker Design, and has worked with clients like Herman Miller, Alessi, Steelcase, Landscape Forms, Burton Snowboards, and more.

Opening reception from 6-9 p.m. at 1301 Broadway St., Detroit; 313649-7741; playgrounddetroit.com. On view until Friday, Jan. 31.
