It is a website that we can participate in by submitting photos of ‘a beam of light’. It reminds me of the proposal ‘planes of light’. Go check it out! Here are some examples from the website.
Light Ray Studies

“Most great ideas are the ones that are very simple, yet effective. I’m looking forward to having the One Beam of Light book in my hands and seeing a compilation of stunning creativity.”
Developing a Mutable Horizon
by Chris Fraser
“I feel very fortunate to have found a line of inquiry that regularly challenges and rewards me. It is less a style than a philosophy. I spend my days attending to each accident of light. I wave my hands in front of walls, swirl my water glass at dinner, and above all else, stare. My studio practice begins when I open my eyes and ends when I close them. I cannot wait to find out what the participants create with just one beam of light.”

Chul Hyun Ahn is a member of a group of young light artists including Olafur Eliasson, Ivan Navarro, Spencer Finch, and Leo Villareal. Ahn creates meditations on zen notions of the infinite and the void which distinguishes Ahn’s oeuvre from other artists working with light. Ahn’s multiple on-going sculpture series including “Forked Series” and “Tunnel Series” systematically explore the limitations of space and optics. Hilarie M. Sheets, contributing editor of ARTnews who also writes regularly for The New York Times, Art In America, and Art + Auction, said his work is “At once thrilling and ominous, it suggests a rabbit hole to another world—underwater, outer space, afterlife—or journey to the unknown, the kind of leap of faith involved in the artist’s own passage to an unfamiliar country and language.”As a pillar in the resurgence of light art, “Ahn creates sculptures utilizing light, color and illusion as physical representations of his investigation of infinite space.” Ahn lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland where he is represented by C. Grimaldis Gallery.
Alessandro Lupi’s ‘Dream’ was exhibited in Belgrade of Light festival that ENLIGHTER.ORG participated in as a media partner. ‘Dream’ is one of the most inspiring and surprisingly gentle and sensitive works of art we have seen in the festival. It is a ’statue’ of a sleeping woman made of threads which are painted with a translucent material on selected sections. When it is lit with UV light the painted sections start to glow and create a 3D image.
