What is Guerrilla Lighting?
Guerrilla lighting is a war on bad lighting, guerrilla lighting is a protest against wasteful use of light but most of all, guerrilla lighting is about having fun and raising the awareness of the power of light
Professionally designed architectural lighting enhances the nightscape of our cities and towns but requires the use of energy. In order to ensure that a correct balance is achieved between the benefits of good lighting and irresponsible use of energy more control is required. We believe that this control should include the control of architectural lighting of buildings.
- not all buildings need or deserve to be lit – strategic lighting plans should exist for all cities
- architectural lighting is not a competition – brighter is not better
- poorly designed and installed lighting should be prevented – cities should establish and enforce a minimum standard of quality
- all wasteful use of light should be prevent – leaving the lights on all night in large glazed offices should be a criminal offence
Guerrilla lighting creates ephemeral and magical moments of quality lighting that are recorded and sent to the media and politicians to instigate action against bad lighting
