Interactive multimedia artist Stephen Vitiello, whose geographic sound installation, “A Bell for Every Minute,” rang out on the High Line back in 2010-11 and was later acquired for MoMA’s sculpture garden, will be adding a glow to the Baryshnikov Arts Center with the New York premiere of “Light Readings,” translating light into sound using photocells. The unique environment will be open for free December 8-18 from 3:00 to 5:00 or 8:00 during the week and 12 noon to 6:00 on Saturday in Studio 6A, where the natural light will keep things ever changing; Vitiello, a Guggenheim Fellow and an associate professor of kinetic imaging at Virginia Commonwealth University, will also be at BAC on December 9 for a special one-time-only forty-five-minute ticketed performance.
