MoCA L.I.ghts 2022 MAP HERE Download & Glow!
MoCA L.I.ghts 2022 will transform downtown Patchogue into L.I.’s only immersive, open-air museum with site-specific projected installations on both modern & historic architecture throughout the downtown to be viewed by the public at not cost on foot, by car, or live-streamed. Surrounding businesses will again become a vibrant backdrop to this unique arts experience, rejuvenating and illuminating the Village for spectators of all ages. The work of over 100 local, national, & international artists of varied career levels – emerging, mid-career, and well-established – will be presented through programs such as: Art on the Marquee (AoM), LIVE Experimentation Labs, ARTchitecture, Night Visions Projected Pop-Up Gallery (NVP), Themescape Activated, Garden of Sculpted deLights, Projection inspired performance, and educational opportunities for artists interested in learning how to work in digital processes. In partnership with Cornell Cooperative and the Pat-Med Library, there will also be contemporary art & local history walking tours as well as onsite family friendly educational programs that coincide with a number of the projection projects.
ARTCHITECTURE | October 13 – 16 from 6:00 PM – 11:00 PM each evening Site-specific projections will illuminate the facades of contemporary and historic architecture, including some of Patchogue’s most beloved buildings located throughout the Downtown.

3 | United Methodist Church | Corner of South Ocean Avenue & Church Street Lepidoptera Psychedelia by Amanda Reilly (US) Inspired by the wild psychedelic illustrations culturally rooted within the 1960s, this rotoscope animation consists of over 120 individually hand drawn frames over recorded video clips of the artist herself. The animation features the figure with the head of a butterfly in a shaman-esque trance dance in altered states of consciousness. The hypnotizing color combinations rapidly flicker on screen to dazzle and mystify viewers.
4 | Historic Industrial Coverage Corp. | Corner of South Ocean Avenue & Church Street Infini by WillStall (US) When your world descends into a repetitive menagerie of chaos, do you even try to find order?
WillStall is a generative artist who specializes in shaders. With math as his paintbrush, Will creates unique worlds and is heavily inspired by impossible geometry, non-euclidean worlds, and light transport theory. This piece was written entirely in the GLSL coding language. No 2d or 3d software was used.

5 | Historic Carnegie Library | 160 West Main Street Paper Palazzo by Kelley Bell (US) Paper Palazzo transforms the stately facade of the historic Carnegie Library into a bustling collage of texts, illustrations, endpapers, and covers. This musical mashup of manuscripts celebrates New York Libraries, the books that they house and preserve, and the New Yorkers that write them. The patterns and textures are collected from the Patchogue-Medford Library itself, as well as from the digital collections of the New York Public Library and the artist’s own collection of ephemera and printed matter.
Thanks to Danielle Paisley, Laura Accardi, Gary Lutz, and The Entire Library Staff of The Patchogue-Medford Library for their contribution of images from the library stacks, and to the Friends of the Patchogue-Medford Library as well. An extra special thanks to the Hungry March Band (NY,NY) for their permission to use their song “Underground” as the score for this piece. Listen to their fantasic sounds at http://hungrymarchband.com/.
6 | Bank of America | 47 W Main Street Metamorphosis by EVM ART (Ukraine) People are progressing and are in constant transformation of themselves and the world around them. This process sometimes happens through pain, sometimes through joy, but I want to believe that all this is for the best. So let’s make the world a more beautiful and better place!

8 | U.S. Post Office | 70 E. Main Street Connected, Fungus Dream, Remember Sakura Sacred Tree, and Vivid Dreams by Minelauvart | Sefa Kocakalay (Turkey) There are some moments when you have a hard time explaining yourself. At these times words are insufficient. These are times you want to express what you feel. And here it is “AI.” I believe I denounce myself with 1 and 0 instead of using words. You may find something of yourself on this voyage. Just dream in an artificial way.
The visionary, psychedelic, surrealist, and abstract artworks that I create are made using current, different artificial intelligence technologies and inspired by my imagination.
Sefa Kocakalay, born in 1999, is a Jr. Data Scientist, Researcher and Generative artist based in Ismir, Turkey. He is passionate about learning, researching and self-development, and also curious about utilizing innovations and technologies to create works of art that create an entrancing experience for viewers.
Working toward a career in his main interest in traditional Machine/Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence, currently his research also includes Generative Adversarial Networks, VQGAN and Natural Language Processing. minelauvart.carrd.co
9 | Main Pat-Med Library | 54 – 60 East Main Street Windows: PMLIB Interactive Aquarium by QuiverWall: See onsite staff to create your own fish to see added to the digital aquarium! See the first permanent projection window installed on L.I.! Inspired by the limitless possibilities of technology, the library will now be utilizing projection in their yearlong displays.
Wall: Main Pat-Med Library | 54 – 60 East Main Street Distributed Consciousness by Memo Atkins (Istanbul, Turkey) Distributed Consciousness is a multi-faceted work that spans themes of artificial intelligence, distributed computation, distributed cognition, evolution, phenomenology, ecological awareness, climate change, activism, and cephalopods.
Cephalopods are not only incredibly intelligent, their intelligence is extremely alien to us. Only 10% of their neurons are in a central brain, while the rest is distributed across their body, with two thirds in their arms. In a sense, they have a decentralized nervous system. “Distributed Consciousness” draws parallels between the distributed computation performed by smart-contract based blockchains, and the distributed cognition of cephalopods. The project also uses the extraordinary alien intelligence of cephalopods, to reflect on the new synthetic alien intelligences we are building in machines in the form of AI.
10 | Themescape 2022 Mural Animated | Roe Walkway – Southside of Pat-Med Library I contemplate the New Day, 2022 by Michael Krasowitz (US) Lucidity will take place Saturday, October 15, 2022, from 7:00 – 8:00 PM. This performance will feature dance by Wendi Weng & an operatic song by Danielle Davis
