Lightfield by HYBYCOZO

Experience the Sensation of "Lightfield"

"Lightfield" by HYBYCOZO at Cathedral Square Park

Johnson Financial Group

"Lightfield" by HYBYCOZO presented by Johnson Financial Group transformed Cathedral Square Park into an immersive public art installation featuring the work of the Ukrainian and Canadian artist duo, HYBYCOZO. "Lightfield" by HYBYCOZO was a free and accessible public art installation displayed between January 19 - May 5, 2023. 

The installation featured eight ground sculptures and 16 hanging lanterns suspended from the park's trees. On select winter nights, guests enjoyed free programming with an ice bar, hot chocolate, and s'mores. For families, the installation offered interactive lesson plans for children. "Lightfield" by HYBYCOZO was presented by Johnson Financial Group, with support from Madison Medical Affiliates, Herb Kohl Philanthropy, Events By Design, and Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21. 


HYBYCOZO is the collaborative studio of Serge Beaulieu and Yelena Filipchuk. The work consists of larger than life geometric sculptures, often with patterns and textures that draw inspirations from mathematics, science, and natural phenomena. Their works celebrate the inherent beauty of geometric form and pattern, and compose them in ways that harmonize the experience of sculpture, light, and shadow.

HYBYCOZO is short for The Hyperspace Bypass Construction Zone and represents the artists ongoing journey investigating the myriad dimensions of geometry. They have permanent public artworks around the world, from Dubai to Istanbul and Las Vegas to New Zealand.
