Do you love light?
Do you think light can create magical spaces?
Do you think you can be a part of the creative team who aimed to make a difference?
For the ilightmarinabay 2010 and Singapore Archifest 2010, that will be held in October 2010, Singapore’s whenlightswork collective and UK’s Light Collective are planning the inaugural ‘Guerrilla Lighting’ workshop for students from different design disciplines, ranging from architecture, to theatrical lighting design or simply, students with a love for light.
Primarily, the guerrilla lighting is a series of ‘surprise attacks’ on ‘neglected’ urban spaces through the use of light in space. With interesting results that are generated from the previous ‘guerrilla lighting’ events that were held in Europe, it is surprising what light can do and with light, we can visualize magic in space.
Do join us for the 3-day workshop to be inspired by light, to bask in light or to have fun with light. Regular updates will be made via the website, so please view our official event websites for updates. However, to keep everyone ‘in the mood for light’, do drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more details or if you will like to ‘stalk’ us online.
This 3-day workshop is sponsored by the Urban Redevelopment Authority, under the Architecture and Urban Design Excellence (A.UDE) Promotion Programme, Technolite (S) Pte Ltd, OSRAM Singapore, 3M Singapore and Philips Lighting Singapore.
