Light Art

Sustainable graffiti

During a citytrip in Amsterdam Noord, we visited PIPS:lab. This artistic group introduced us with Light art. I was very intruged by it and I love this concept.

Light art is mainly produced using long exposure cameras, in which the length of the exposure can be increased or decreased to collect more or less light information. However it is also possible to achieve a very limited form of light art using a standard camera, as if a camera is moving at the time it takes the image, the changes in the image during the capture time will also be in the picture.

This is an image by Michael Bosanko, a light artist in South Wales who works with light art and light graffiti which is hand made to his own artistic specifications.

Bosanko has worked on a Ford Focus commercial. In my opinion this commercial is really  cool.

A step further

Light graffiti – also known as light painting – comes in a wide array of forms, from cartoons and creatures to shapes that highlight architectural details in urban environments. But these images, by German duo Jan Wöllert and Jörg Miedza of LAPP (Light Art Performance Photography), take that concept a step further, using light and a series of carefully choreographed movements to create complex forms.
