“Light as an element of contemporary designs and crafts” research project

The subtle relations between light and shadow

Using existing sources, fieldwork and interviews, we have conducted an analytical research on the works using element of ‘light’ with a focus on “craft and design”, discussing the traits and applications of light, the medium and materials interact with light, the imaging and shadows of light.

Few examples include the application and differences between natural light and artificial light, transparency of the material, imaging and shadows, 3D mapping projection, and how light transform a space and its atmospheres.

With an aim to explore how contemporary artists and designers apply their concepts through different techniques to the fields of space design, art, product design, crafts…etc. we hoped to have a better understanding of their context, and to serve as basis for brighter future.
