Women Light Artists – Collected Light Volume One
The Women in Lighting project inspired Light Collective to look at all aspects of representation in the field of light. We found and researched over 150 women creating light based art which led to the curation of the book. Over 40 women participated by sharing images of their work. From immersive environments to reactive light, beautiful glowing objects to light that tells a story, this collection of light art from women artists includes a multitude of manipulations of the medium. Directing the viewer to contemplate colour, nature, politics, life and even death, the true power of light as an artistic medium is perfectly portrayed by the artists included.

The result is a collection of poetic and personal thoughts, visions, stories, memories and statements about light and shadow.
