Sculpture Workshop: Light it up - Εικόνα

* The workshop which was scheduled for Tuesday 04/01 is postponed. The next workshop will take place on Sunday 09/01 at 12.00 at the NLG Book Castle.

What is light? What are its properties? What color is it? Can you hear or touch it? How does an artist use light? What was the first light sculpture in history? 

In this series of workshops, drawing inspiration from the light installations at the Stavros Niarchos Park, light acquires “plastic” properties and becomes the dominant material in the construction of an artwork.
By integrating light into natural or industrial objects and tools, by playing with self-luminous accessories and materials, we create “light sculptures” that produce visual effects while also interacting with various external stimuli.

Session #1
Light it up: The Galaxy
By activating bright colorful and fluorescent bars, we can picture what an alien colony of the future would look like!

Session #2
Light it up: The Ocean
Triggered by the light installation Living Lantern by NEON and Frankie Boyle Studio, located at the Pine Grove, we draw inspiration from corals, the precious jewels of the vast ocean, and construct an imaginary reef of colorful 3D flowers…

Session #3
Light it up: The Earth
Inspired by the light installation Aqueous by Jen Lewin, located on the Great Lawn, this workshop poses the following question from a visual arts perspective: If Earth were a huge mirror, what would it reflect onto infinity? Using concave and convex mirrors, we construct a solid water world that interacts playfully with the colors of light!

Session #4
Light it up: The Sky
Spurred by the light installation Firefly Field by Studio Toer, located in the Dome, we create a world of tiny winged creatures that glimmer in the dark!

Design and Implementation: Very Young Contemporary Art, Katerina Zafeiropoulou
