Greetings and welcome to my blog on the art of light. Light art has been a passion of mine for over 20 years. In that time I’ve played with all kinds of light forms including laser light, holograms, incandescent light, LEDs, etc. all tools of the trade to be manipulated into visual delights for that eventual mind massage.
One such project has been working with Lumia (a form of textured light) as an art form. To do this, I build Lumia light projectors that present any number of spectacular Lumia lightscapes for performance or gallery exhibition presence. The problem is that only a few people at a time can see this work, and certainly no one sees all the work.
In the interest of sharing my light art on a bigger scale, I’ve begun photographing various Lumia imagery, and have transformed a small part of the photo collection into a book titled Sacred Destinations and Journeys Along The Way. The light art book is a very exciting way to share Lumia as an art form. In doing so, the creation of this blog about light as an art form opens the door to exploring the art of light, both as a photographic documentation and in real time as an experiential moment of illuminated art appreciation.
While I can go on for hours about the wonders of light as an artistic medium, we have a clear case of where a few (Lumia) pictures are worth a thousand words. The thousand words on light art will still be presented, but done in a tasteful measure in more than a few posts. In the meanwhile, my book; Sacred Destinations and Journeys Along The Way.
