Tiny bolts of lightning are captured on camera as they shoot with various tesla coil appliances turning the discharge of electricity into a form of art.
For Highlumen blog, Marc describes the process of his creation:
But please be warned, this is not for untrained professionals, as Marc adds:
We know we’re late on this, but happy birthday to Nikola Tesla, who is among the greatest minds ever lived on this planet, and we must proudly add, of Serbian ethnicity.
Marc inspired us not only with his work but with his unusual combination of skills, as you can see here:
Choreographer Dalija Acin Thelander is creating mesmerizing and safe artistic environments for infants and adults. She is combining visual arts, dance, music and poetry to offer her youngest audience an experience that shouldn’t be exclusive to adults.
Her performances stimulate all senses and perception of babies and encouraging interaction, sparking their curiosity and triggering exploration.
What happens when fashion and light design collide?
Many designers tried different techniques to incorporate light in to a wearable light piece.
For example, this talented Korean knitwear designer - HyunJin Yun experimented with glow-in-the-dark yarn, metallic and transparent yarn for knitting and digital printing.
She is not a simple knitwear designer because she is focusing more on e-knitting design in home design. Through her works she bring us in to her exciting visual spectacle world.
Are you familiar with the dress that moves when you look at? It is hi-tech glow-in-the-dark outfit made from the world's lightest fabric and it responds to people's gaze.
The author is Montreal-based designer Ying Gao. She used sensory technology in her dresses and they are made from super-organza and sewn in glow-in-the-dark thread.
And of course the dress that sparked the idea for this post - Zendaya’s 2019 Met Gala Cinderella Dress by Tommy Hilfiger.
Australia-born artist James Tapscott creates beautiful and otherworldly outdoor installations using various types of light.
In the Arc series he allows time and nature to produce it’s artwork with the help of light.
Arc One is installed at Lake Tyrell, Victoria. Beginning as a gentle arc, a 100 meter length of flexible rope-light imbedded in the lake’s crust is left for one month to allow the site to manipulate it’s form through daily tidal movements.
Levitating Landscapes is an immersive art installation that was made specifically for the opening of the Downtown Park Pavilion.
The piece utilizes mixed-media including light, video, sound and atmospherics to enhance buoyant nature of the pavilion and engage visitors’ multisensory participation in seemingly levitating landscape.
Using commercial fluorescent light tubing, Dan Flavin created light installations, making the spaces washed in vivid rainbow hues which became icons of Minimalism.
His circa 50 years old light installations are shining bright today, still looking very contemporary.
While outwardly simple and direct, these arrangements produce visual effects of surprising subtlety.
His choice of the material was motivated in part by a desire to break free from both Abstract Expressionism and Pop art by seizing on the anonymous and industrial nature of a familiar commercial product.
Inspired with the relationship between the moon and the sun, Yoshizoe's mobile called 1.625m/s2 reflects the light of one simple bulb via mirror.
It consists of a series of suspended mirrors that reflect light to illuminate the surrounding space. If placed near window, it can also reflect light directly from the sun.
The mobile is called 1.625m/s2, which is the downwards acceleration caused by the moon's gravity on a falling body.
Royal Tapestry Factory in Madrid, founded in 1721, gets the makeover with innovative and fascinating new lighting.
Light & Studio designed lighting for this 4000 m2 property, inspired by the work of the ancient artisans who have gone through the workshops of the Royal Tapestry Factory of Madrid.
Its objective was the construction of a bridge between tradition and innovation, between the old and the new, a bridge that unites this factory working since 1721 and the coworking space for innovation companies that has been created between its walls, the Loom House.
The design is based on methacrylate tubes installed at different heights to create those crosses that resemble textile patterns. More than 200m of digital LED strips controlled point by point, run through these tubes making different scenes and tours, led by light.
It has been possible thanks to 3 controllers of 64 universes each, connected to a software made to measure for the project, images are launched in real time, generating different atmospheres.
The programming is integrated in a Dali system that allows to handle, through a touch screen, both the digital lighting and the rest of the lighting in the room. This system also allows adjusting the lighting to natural light that enters through the windows throughout the day to respect our biorhythms.
