Urban Light by Chris Burden

Here is a link to his wikipedia page

This is newer piece at LACMA in Los Angeles. It’s pretty interesting at night.

Shameless self promotion…

Just for the heck of it I thought I would include a couple photos from a small series I made about shadows and light. Again, not instillation, but documentation of found light art I guess you could say.

Tracey Emin

Though Tracey Emin isn’t generally thought of as a Light Artist, I thought I would include this image and link. She did a series of neon sign works, made to the form of her own hand writing with a personal message. Now she’s doing this cool thing where she makes an edition of a dvd with a looped video of the neon, that you can own for a very modest price. http://www.seditionart.com/tracey_emin

I don’t see it as a traditional transformation of space with light, though it could be if say it were the only light in a room. Still I think it’s interesting, and the juxtaposition between neon/signage (industrial, for consumers) and extremely personal words, is another way to think of Light Art for me.

i Light Marina Bay,Singapore

Although it was end already, but this website still shows some lighting artists works.

i Light Marina Bay, Asia’s first and only sustainable light art festival was first held from 15 October to 7 November in 2010. Presented by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) and organised by Smart Light Singapore (SLS), the event celebrated Marina Bay’s nightscape through the showcase of 25 dynamic and innovative light art installations along the 3.5km waterfront promenade.

Bubbles – Interactive Pneumatic Environment by Michael Fox and etc.



Bubbles is an adaptable spatial pneumatic installation at an urban scale. The installation consists of large pneumatic volumes that inflate and deflate in reaction to the visitors coming to the site. If unoccupied the volume of the site is slowly filled by the spatially distributed sacks creating a translucent bubble translucent infill. As the occupants enter and move through the installation, they bump the bubbles ranging from 6′ to 8′ in diameter that fill the lower layer of the space. More activity opens up the space more making it navigable. Sensors in the bubbles cause a fan in the manifold to transfer air to the bubble.
