A Cathedral Made from 55,000 LED Lights

January 31, 2012

Christopher Jobson

The Luminarie De Cagna is an imposing cathedral-like structure that was recently on display at the 2012 Light Festival in Ghent, Belgium. The festival was host to almost 30 exhibitions including plenty of 3D projection mapping, fields of luminous flowers, and a glowing phone booth aquarium, however with 55,000 LEDs and towering 28 meters high the Luminarie De Cagna seems to have stolen the show.

Rashad Alakbarov Paints with Shadows and Light

January 20, 2012

Christopher Jobson

This is kind of flying all over the internet right now, but I couldn’t resist sharing. Artist Rashad Alakbarov from Azerbaijan uses suspended translucent objects and other found materials to create light and shadow paintings on walls. The jaw-dropping light painting above, made with an array of colored airplanes is currently on view at the Fly to Baku exhibition at De Pury Gallery in London through January 29th.

Rippled: A Light Painting Music Video Shot Entirely In Camera

January 7, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Rippled is a music video shot by Australian animators Oh Yeah Wow for a track off All India Radio’s The Silent Surf. The entire video was painstakingly rendered frame-by-frame in camera using long exposure light painting techniques. I think my favorite thing about this piece other than some of the brilliant sequences (and there are many) is the near constant presence of blurred people in the background who look like ghost puppeteers, moving the figures and lights bit by bit. Stunning work. (via vimeo)

Swarms

December 14, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Photographer Thomas Jackson (previously) has been working on a new series of images based on the idea of swarms, shooting large hovering masses of objects in locations around New York. He says the idea is still a work in progress and that some of these photos should just be considered “sketches,” but I think they’re really fantastic already. See them a bit larger on his site.

Bruce Munro's Newest Light Installation at the Holbourne Museum

November 25, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Artist Bruce Munro has unveiled his latest light installation at Holbourne Museum in Bath. The field of more than 5,000 Christmas lights atop acrylic stems sprawls across the museum grounds intending to mimic the way a barren desert bursts into bloom after a brief rainfall. See much more over at the Daily Mail. (via notcot)

Light Stencils Commemorate Victims of the 2011 Christchurch Earthquake

November 23, 2011

Christopher Jobson

The 2011 Christchurch earthquake was the largest natural disaster in New Zealand’s history, claiming the lives of 181 people and leaving behind nearly $30 billion in rebuilding costs. Touched by the events of that February day, photographer Fabrice Wittner set out to confront the destruction the best way he knew how: by making art. His Enlightened Souls project utilizes large, human-sized stencils that are painted with light during long exposures, creating thin portraits that appear almost like holograms. Many more images and process shots can be seen here. Images courtesy the artist. (via behance)
