Alumni News: Patrick Grenier's Light Installation: "It's always darkest before the dawn"

In a spirit of hope following the 2008 presidential election, artist Patrick Grenier (Draper Alumnus, 2004) created the site-specific "It's always darkest before the dawn," a 24/7 light installation which sought to "explor[e] those moments when we find ourselves literally and metaphorically moving away from our darkest hour."

Over the past 15 years, Grenier has "created an interdisciplinary body of work that ranges from film/video, sculptural installations and performance to writing, curating, and public tours." For more information on his current and past projects and exhibitions, see
