Edd Johannemann choreographs light to create sculptures of kaleidoscopic color and motion. His work is frequently philosophical, exploring the boundaries of faith, beliefs, values, facts and assumptions. Edd is largely self-taught; his sculptures combine his love of photography, woodworking, and stained glass. 

Edd works in La Grange, KY where he lives on a lake with the love of his life and muse.
