Michael Theodore's newest and largest installation has transformed the UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art 2,800' square foot campus site into an immersive perceptual experience. Inspired by subtle animal behaviors in nature such as firefly flash patterns, bioluminescence and echolocation, micro/macro evolves Theodore's ongoing exploration of machine made and organic forms and the line between chaos and order. 

In micro/macro, kinetic elements pulse towards synchronized rhythm while a designed element of disorder turbulently disrupts, producing a wholly different perceptual experience for viewers each time they visit during the 11-week run of the exhibit. Washes of raking, saturated colored light combine with movement of forms and shadows as well as sound elements to dimensionally define the space.
