Light Art

Light art

Adding light to an artistic expression changes the experience of both shape and dimension. Birgit Oestergaard uses different forms of technical lighting solutions such as fiber-optic, RGB controlled LEDs, neon and regular electric bulbs in her installations, sculptures and two-dimensional works of art. The Danish artist and lighting designer uses light in her art to emphasizing the conceptual tracks and studies of rhythmic transformations of the work as a result of the natural light. In these works interaction between object and shadow adds complexity and depth to the meaning of the work. As art, dealing with time, an expression could be transient and the specific moment becomes more important than the preservation of the work.

Light in art

The official definition of light art is art in which the artificial light is the main material. Among the earliest experiments with a purely light-based expression is László Moholy-Nagy's light installation Light-Space Modulator 1922-30. For experimental artists in the 1960s, as Dan Flavin and Bruce Nauman, neon lights and other forms of artificial light got importance because the material with its high degree of anonymity manages to deflect attention away from the artist as an individual to a focus on the purely spatial qualities. As technology evolved and the computer screen became a common tool in the workshops, artist in earnest began to experiment with light as an artistic means of expression and younger artists now follows other tracks and lead light art in new directions. Advanced lighting technology, including laser, creates evocative spatial effects, where the tension between the physical nature and the metaphysical space explored - a means of expression that is used to great effect by Danish Elle Mie Ejdrup.  Among important Danish lighting artists are Olafur Eliasson, Gunnar Aagaard Andersen, Thorbjørn Lausten, Astrid Krogh and Kirsten Lockenwitz.
