Leo Villareal • TEDxOrientHarbor
Light and Code as a Medium in the 21st Century
After becoming profoundly lost while attending his first Burning Man in 1994, Leo Villareal decided to make a utilitarian light device to help him find his way back to camp the next year. Little did he know, this creation would lead him to his life’s work. His public light sculptures ignite the imagination, inspire community and are accessible to all. Leo takes us through the early stages of his career, culminating with his recent “Bay Lights,” and an exciting announcement about a future project.
