AU: 3.0
Programme: ADM

Light is the only thing your eyes ever see. Lighting is an important tool for a media artist, lighting is part science, part art. Incident light falls on, reflects and bounces of actors and objects back to the lens that captures. Highlights and shadows become means for expression through creating contrasts, light against dark or dark against light. By strategic placement of light fixtures, the use of natural light or colour elements, students will play with the properties of light. During this class we will explore and experiment the aesthetic impact of light, research the theory of colour as well as technical details, from the fundamentals of optics and projection to the different kinds of lamps, lights, and spots and other lighting equipment and capture it on various digital media.
