Maura's Project Statement: Spotlight Search: a light-based artwork. Originating from the center of downtown Muncie, Indiana, two rotating beams of light are pointed into the night sky. The lights serve as a beacon-a gathering spot for anyone who searches to find them. Spotlight Search is about searching, being found, and finding beauty exactly where you are.

Maura's Artist Statement: Working primarily with time-based media and participatory projects, my work explores the intersections of history, pop culture and mass media as influences that inform our individual and collective sense of self.
