ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station will be illuminated this holiday season with a new temporary art sculpture, “Toying with Light” by Nico Meyer. Selected by the NTC Foundation’s Art in Public Places Committee, “Toying with Light” is the fourth annual Illuminate the Season art installation. The kinetic light sculpture was lit on November 30 as part of the kickoff event for Salute the Season, a full calendar of festive events celebrating the holidays from November-January.
 
Nico Meyer, a San Diego-based artist and structural engineer, has been fabricating metal and wood sculptures for over 10 years. He holds a Master’s degree in Structural Engineering from the University of California, San Diego. Meyer’s experience with mathematics, structures, and algorithms has major influence on his art practice. Through art he explores the beauty of contrast, simplicity versus complexity and uniformity versus randomness. “Our brains are pattern-making machines,” says Meyer. “Individuals and communities actively create and alter patterns. This piece represents shared experience, a quality that makes the holidays special,” he said.
