Jim Campbell went from Silicon Valley engineer to artist working out of his Dogpatch studio. His medium is LED lights and panels, and his focus is on creating images out of data and exploring shadows and movement. Campbell, 58, who lives on San Francisco's Potrero Hill, has numerous public commissions - including his biggest piece, a 750-foot-long ribbon of light at the San Diego airport - and his works are collected by major museums. He will have his 10th exhibition at the Hosfelt Gallery in San Francisco, with an opening reception Saturday.
