Joe O’Connell and Blessing Hancock - “Ballroom Luminoso”

As a public art piece in San Antonio, TX, artists Joe O’Connell and Blessing Hancock collaborated on an installation in 2013 at the Theo & Malone Underpass at IH 35 freeway. Entitled “Ballroom Luminoso,” the installation consisted of six brightly lit chandeliers constructed from recycled bike parts and structural steel, which were each outfitted with LED lights that changed color. When lit, the spherical sculptures would cast shadows that spanned a large area under the freeway, creating interesting patterns that transformed the once-forgotten space into a beautified area that brought the community together to enjoy it.
