Research Presentation: Interactive Light

June 6, 2017

I present the  findings of my light research “Interactive Light” for which I received a development budget from the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts. You are very welcome. The presentation is hosted by the instituut lichtontwerpen, the entrance is free.

" Light is a both sensory and spatial medium that plays an increasingly important role in my visual and performative work. But how to make use of the lighting technology present in the theaters such that light can become responsive or interactive and that it can take part in the data flow between different media and systems on stage? How can light respond to imagery or to moving bodies on stage? Or even lead its own life entirely? With this research, I approach light with terminologies such as data mapping, flow, response and strategies such as software programming and sensor input.  Is it possible to create a situation where all elements on stage relate to each other and were material is generated that owns its own ‘non-intentional’ logic? "
