In the electric and organic phenomena of light, Piper Ainsley produces works of art, architecture, and architectonics. She composes material relationships which allow light to act across scale and disciplinary boundary. She uses light to distort distinctions of place, creating new visual and inhabitable experience.

Her works assume light’s universal capacity to elicit experiences of reflection, wonder, and the sublime.  

Piper Ainsley is the author of Light is Certainly Worth Chasing (2016) and holds a Masters of Design in Adaptive Reuse and Interior Architecture from RISD (Rhode Island School of Design). She writes and teaches, and works in installation, sculpture, painting, and architecture.
