  • Give Me the Light

    Posted on 05/11/2013 by David in Fashion & Design Exhibitions.


     

    When I was a student in Interior design a few years ago, lighting design was by far my favourite subject. Technical topics aren’t usually my strongest points – a look at my past school reports in Physics would speak volumes – although strangely enough, I enjoyed working with lighting formulae. Just to show you can do anything if you put your mind to it!

    But what appeals the most to me are the aesthetics of lighting: the world of colours that we experience isn’t just limited by the light itself but by the way it creates a mood and atmosphere on everything and everyone surrounding that light. Japanese and German movie directors in the first half of the twentieth century were masters of using light and shadows to great effect and add depth and mystery to their characters and storytelling.

    No such ambition for me although but I’ve compiled a few pictures for you which I took this year: some in London, some in Paris, some as part of exhibitions and some when I walked down the street.

     

     

    And the inspiration behind this blog title? Here it is…time to hit the dancefloor? 🙂

    La féérie des lumières, c’est magique ! Celle que je préfère est l’imitation, me semble-t-il, de gouttelettes d’eau en verre (ou plastique)vraiment très raffinée.

    A bientôt David !

    These must have taken a lot of work for people to make… quite impressive.

    I gotta wonder how they made the bulbs in the second photo – like a custom made glass blowing or something?
