Adela Andea's light installations look like what might happen if a tornado whipped through a massive LED sign but couldn't quite blow all its elements apart or cut off the power.

Deconstructing the line between the real and the virtual, they transform spaces into pulsating, luminous environments. Andea, a Romanian native who lives in Houston, also creates intricately woven, wall-dependent kinetic sculptures with circuits of lights, LED fans, computer hardware and fiber optics.

She's working her magic soon in "Mandrágora: Liquescent Light" at Anya Tish Gallery.
