"... Peter Terezakis' light installation powerfully suggests
heat lightning fragmenting the desert's night air..."
-- The New York Times, 2000

For the last 12 years, Peter Terezakis has been examining the sacredness of nature and open spaces, questioning the effect development has had on rural areas.

Since 1995, he has created a series of
temporary kinetic light installations in deserts,
forests, and national parks throughout the world.

 
"Terezakis marries art and technology in a unique
visual quest for spiritual engagement."
---- Allyson Grey

Ordinary florescent lamps are transformed into brushstrokes of light momentarily painting earth and sky.
The installations change our perception of space as flashing discharges of plasma invoke a sense of physical movement across an expanding landscape of time and imagination.  For Terezakis the work has become a visual metaphor for life's moments bracketed between birth and death, witnessed
Beneath the Vault of Heaven.
