It is ubiquitous, ephemeral, and mysterious. As such it is a powerful tool to evoke sensations, tell stories, and convey emotions – create art;
Art that relays on a use of light only started gaining attention with the first mention of the term “light art” that was coined in recent 1930 with the creation of kinetic light art work, Light-Space-Modulator, by László Moholy-Nagy.
Da Vinci’s holistic creative research provided him with profound understanding of how light behaves, how it interacts with various materials, and how it affects a human eye.
Light is a complex medium that behaves differently depending on space and time. It is treated differently in painting, cinema, installation art, and other disciplines. It is in this difference that we can find holistic knowledge about light that can then inform about the manipulation of light within each discipline.
As an artist working with light as a tool to transform the poetic experiences of spaces, I find essential to understand light as a material as well as the examples of creative uses of light in history across different art disciplines and further. At the core of researching light art as a discipline is the
development of new knowledge on the critical role of light in history of art as well as its enormous cross-disciplinary significance.
