Sasha vom Dorp, a sculptor whose works combine science, sound and engineering to capture the nature of sound, light and water, is now on display at Cal Poly Pomona’s Don B. Huntley Gallery.

The exhibit, “Sasha vom Dorp: Prequel to 2018,” includes vivid imagery generated by a machine vom Dorp built to pass light through water that is being vibrated by sound waves.

His full-sensory video installations provide a rich sensory experience, of sight, sound and touch. His photographs aim to capture the beauty and turmoil that occurs inside the most pedestrian events. Sunlight bounces on water; sound waves disappear into oblivion.

Located on the fourth floor of the University Library, the gallery is open Mondays and Tuesdays from noon to 4 p.m.; Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 8 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. Vam Dorp’s work will be on display through April 7.
