Meet Gene!

Meet Gene!

I'm Gene Gisin. I'm the mechanical engineer/designer for the operation! At C+L I do a lot of varied things - spanning from conceptual design to industrial design to manufacturing, sourcing and prototyping!

I have been to Burning Man more than 10 times!

Why you make with LEDs:

This technology is finally letting engineers create art with light! Always growing and improving, LEDs are constantly advancing the excitement possible! So it's like playing in a theme park that's getting new rides every day!

Favorite Artist:

I like melodic tech/house. Caleesi and Sarah Kreis are really good :)

Dream Project:

Making an AI interactive electronic rope-tugger for my doggo to play with!

Something that’s more out there: I keep dreaming of a global identity/individual feedback/crypto-based 'new village' concept. With the tech world penetrating deeper and deeper into every aspect of our lives - something along those lines needs to come around. Else we're (the humanity, like) are screwed!

Meet Aaron!

Meet Aaron!

I’m Aaron, one of the co-founders of Color + Light. 

I’m the main email sender for the company :) 

In addition, I lead our sales, business operations, manufacturing and marketing efforts.  I’ve been in the LED art space for 6 years - mainly taking the role of producer on projects I am involved in.  When I’m not typing, I like to play music, surf and cook.

Why you make with LEDs:

I instantly fell in love with LEDs because they were such a tactile piece of hardware at the intersection of art and technology. They have a real life presence that is just so much better than a screen to me.

Favorite Artist:

I’ve been listening to a lot of Led Zeppelin lately. I also really like this french guy Lewis OfMan

Dream Project:

Since I got into LEDs, I’ve been wanting to make a wearable LED wristband that measures and enhances musical experiences - and connects people with similar musical psychographic signatures. One day! 

Meet Jake!

Meet Jake!

My name is Jake Lampack. As a co-founder of Color+Light, I’m typically involved with every aspect of the company, but with a general focus on product R&D, engineering, and software architecture and development. I enjoy thinking about high-level strategy and company vision.

I’m always tempted to climb everything, I’ll probably ask to play your guitar, and I probably eat spicier food than you could ever handle.

Why you make with LEDs:

As an engineer who never ceases to find endless creative inspiration, I believe that LEDs are the ultimate medium for artistic expression. Not unlike a musical instrument, being able to write lines of code and see ideas instantly materialize visually is a deeply visceral experience. Synced with music and other immersive elements, lighting is a root component in all of the profound multi-sensory experiences out there today.

Favorite Artist:

Everyone in the lighting game would have to give some love to James Turrell. As for music, I always struggle to answer this question since what I’m listening to is always evolving!

Dream Project:

My dream project would be one where many different multi-sensory elements can be combined to create a truly novel experience. One that isn’t just flashy technology, but strikes an emotional chord where the technology itself can become completely invisible.
