Lot Essay

'His long hair floats behind him as he strides, alight with the millions of amber pixels that cover his body. He thrives on the city and the dynamism of the people who animate it. Whether because of the looped cord attached to his waist he calls 'infinity', or his glowing eccentricity, he has a way of functioning like a traffic light, moderating extremes of anger or inflexibility in his surroundings. Pools of communication gain warmth and tiny surges of positive energy explode as Loopy Amber takes to the streets, whistling and whirling his infinity loop.'
(The artist quoted, 2014).
