You Say Light – I Think Shadow

109 perspectives collected and visualized by Sandra Praun and Aleksandra Stratimirovic. What is light? To find an answer to this simple but complex issue, invited prominent and inspiring creatives share their thoughts on the phenomenon. The result was a collection of 109 entries, poetic and personal thoughts, visions, stories, memories and statements about light and shadow magic. Each text is individually designed, and together they form a highly visual experience.

Cities of Light: Two Centuries of Urban Illumination

Cities of Light is the first global overview of modern urban illumination, a development that allows human wakefulness to colonize the night, doubling the hours available for purposeful and industrious activities. Urban lighting is undergoing a revolution due to recent developments in lighting technology, and increased focus on sustainability and human-scaled environments. Cities of Light is expansive in coverage, spanning two centuries and touching on developments on six continents, without diluting its central focus on architectural and urban lighting. Covering history, geography, theory, and speculation in urban lighting, readers will have numerous points of entry into the book, finding it easy to navigate for a quick reference and or a coherent narrative if read straight through. With chapters written by respected scholars and highly-regarded contemporary practitioners, this book will delight students and practitioners of architectural and urban history, area and cultural studies, and lighting design professionals and the institutional and municipal authorities they serve.

Lighting People’s Cities

Asia’s first and only sustainable light art festival, iLight Marina Bay is organised by the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore, and celebrates the sights and sounds of Marina Bay, one of the focal points of Singapore’s cityscape. The third edition of the festival was held March 7th through 30th in 2014, with the theme Light+HeART. As festival curator, the focus for the ONG&ONG team was to bring out the key message, that the awareness of sustainability through light is only possible if it resonates deep in our hearts – an enlightenment from within. This book will attempt to document the spirit and motivations behind the works made for the festival, through interviews with and personal essays by the artists, as well as those of our other collaborators. These will also include their thoughts about the lighting of urban spaces in general, bringing together their personal experiences and work as practitioners of the craft.
