Art Fair Philippines Features AC Motors' Automotive Light Technology by World-Class Artist James Clar

For AC Motors’ exhibit space, the work of James Clar takes the spotlight. Using laser lights, Clar creates fully immersive and engaging light environments that explore perceptions of reality, time and space.

What is visible light, but merely radiation within the electromagnetic spectrum that can be perceived by the human eye? But there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to perceiving light from two standpoints: The human condition and the human in motion. This is what AC Motors seeks to unveil in its initiative to support the most creative and moving minds in the local and international art scene at the Art Fair Philippines 2020 from February 21 to 23 at The Link in Ayala Center, Makati City.
