"Kunsthøjskolen i Holbæk"

"Kunsthøjskolen" is an art school (folk high school) offering both long and short courses in various artistic disciplines.
In 2005 the school decided to make lighting an overall theme for one of their short summer courses.

I worked with four groups of participants; two painting groups, a graphics group, and an art installation group.
My job was to teach the participants within all aspects of lighting and inspire them to consider how their specific artistic discipline is affected by lights.

Each group was given an introduction to lighting and a task or a project.
By the end of the two weeks each group had a final exhibition of their work.
Some had been greatly inspired by the lectures in lighting.

Painting group 1: work in progress, exploring what kind of coloured light vs. white light, paint absorbs and what it reflects.

If you ever consider to built this yourself, here's an advice; DON'T PAINT IT BLACK ON THE OUTSIDE!!!
