The project provides an exclusive opportunity for lighting designers to create stunning and inspirational photographs that start with a single source of light. By stripping it back to such a minimal entity, entrants are encouraged to twist and manipulate a “pure” form of light into dynamic and eye-catching imagery. Once assembled, the images will be curated by a guest panel including: Keith Bradshaw of Spiers & Major, Gerd Pfarre of Lichtplanung, Matt Clark of UVA and Terence Woodgate of Studio Woodgate. The selected images will then be exhibited in London followed by an international tour, which will take in key cities across the globe and feature the artists’ work on a large scale.
”The One Beam of Light project enables entrants to strip light to its barest essential and show their skills in manipulating the medium, and revealing its inherent beauty. We will then take the best images and use them to promote lighting design worldwide as a key creative industry. We are enthused to be collaborating with Concord on this fantastic initiative.” – Sharon Stammers & Martin Lupton, Light Collective
150 global VIP lighting designers have been formally invited to participate by Light Collective. All of the invitees that sign up will be given a Concord Beacon Muse Projector to use as a light source for this project. Just to keep things interesting, some will receive a projector with a gobo, some an iris and some a framing head, hence adding a further element of variation to the project’s results.
However, Anyone can enter and participate in this event, using any single source of their choosing. You may use any props, items, filters, animals, people or accessories to modify your one beam in any way you think will create an amazing image. The contest deadline is 30th November. Images will also be selected to form a commemorative book about light, highlighting both this project and work(s) by the shortlisted entrants.
