Leland Drexler-Russell

Leland Drexler-Russell launched TransPlant Design to imbue the world with an added sense of enchantment. He uses special effects techniques to create large, interactive installations that envelop participants in surreal environs. His inspiration comes from the amazingly diverse flora and fauna found on our earth and speculative astrobiology of faraway worlds. For Luminaria, Drexler-Russell created a collection of large, woven, illuminated sculptures titled Awakening, which were brought to life by viewer participation. Curious artifacts stirred upon human presence, leading viewers through an enchanted trail along the San Antonio Riverwalk.
