“Light Elephant” is a collaborative project by Iman Djouini and Jonathan Taube. The project features a 16ft white inflatable elephant that travels to specific locations where it is documented through digital images that are later distributed through print and social media.
This artwork engages public space and produces digital content through a social media campaign through Downtown
Santa Barbara, block by block, story by story, for a sustained time period. Its creators, Iman Djouini and Jonathan Taube, are professors at UCSB department of Art and College or Creative Studies. Djouini's research is in Print in Public Space and
will convene the first SPL Editorial Board in the College of Creative Studies this fall for an annual Public Art Project in the form of multimedia campaigns in public sites.
This project was initially made in relationship with Baltimore City neighborhood association of The Coldstream Homestead Montebello community who helped  to pick initial locations throughout Baltimore city.
