Light Research

Research project in collaboration with Digital Culture Research Centre and Watershed

Light Research was a series of public consultation workshops, which used light drawings as a vehicle for dialogue and debate with the public. Light research is a tool that enables the public to make light drawings as a way of communicating what they think and feel about a public space, or a specific subject. The method departs from the concept of ‘Lego Serious Play’, ‘hands-on minds-on’ and ideas of using metaphors. Here light drawings are used as a method to playfully explore the space outside the Watershed building. Watershed are working with Tine towards the installation of an interactive artwork and these workshops were the first step in researching people's thoughts and feelings in relation to the public space in front of the Watershed.

Images were created by 60 participants.
