Blunite is an organization formed by UCSB students in response to the Isla Vista tragedy. Our group creates community art installations and events centered around blue light as a symbol of unity and community healing.
It all started when...
Madeline took an art class at UCSB, with Professor Kim Yasuda, called IV Open Lab. It was a class where you could do anything you want - as long as you put an impact on Isla Vista in some way. Little did she know that class would turn into the next two and a half years of her college career - transforming the Isla Vista community with beautiful blue light and a whole lot of community love.
