Expressive Generative Lighting
Light is a fascinating and powerfully expressive medium. Traditionally, the objective of lighting design has been to functionally illuminate a space for any intended purpose. But more interesting is the potential to create an emotional response, rather than a realistic effect.With the advances of lighting technologies and digital control, a huge door has been opened tointerrelate any kind of media and create visual storytelling using light. From data driven visuals, interactive dynamic lighting to sound reactive shows, the possibilities are endless.
In this talk, the design process and some of the tools that are used to create both these digital and analogue experiences will be discussed.In this talk, the design process and some of the tools that are used to create both these digital and analogue experiences will be discussed.
