CINCINNATI – (October 7, 2022) – Empower is a proud sponsor of the nationally recognized immersive art experience known as BLINK. The Media Agency is creating its own installation that simultaneously transforms in scale while celebrating individuality. Empower’s “See Yourself in Light” uses data from a person’s digital photograph that is translated into a fractal design, with repeating patterns of stylized elements, absolutely unique to them. From there, individual art will unite to become a showcase of the togetherness of the community displayed on a three-story brick wall. See yourself in light at Empower’s headquarters in Cincinnati at 15 E 14th St. on October 13–16 from 7-11pm ET.
“We are so thankful to have incredible supporters and collaborators like Empower,” said Justin Brookhart, executive director, BLINK. “Their talented team is bringing an exciting and engaging interactive experience to the BLINK event,” he said.
More than 100 art installations stretching across 30 blocks and the Ohio river will illuminate the city of Cincinnati during BLINK.
“We’re thrilled to partner with BLINK and light up our beloved Over-the-Rhine neighborhood with our own take on innovative art and technology,” said Jim Price, president and CEO at Empower. “Furthermore, Empower’s mission is all about delivering on Media that Transforms and BLINK Cincinnati is an amazing artistic expression of transformation that inspires us all,” said Price.
The “See Yourself in Light” idea was driven by Empower’s talented team members and VP of Product Vince Ledney developed the custom fractal art code that makes it personal to each event attendee. Ledney spends most of his days deep in AI and machine learning – constantly innovating on the fringe, breaking the mold, and building for the future for Empower clients.
