The Future of Light Art

Symposium | February 8–9, 2018

Light is a messenger from the universe

Everything we know, we know through light – that is the claim by astrophysics at least. One thing is clear: From quantum optics (»The Angular Momentum of Light«) to chronobiology, from nano-optics to photonics, a new front of scientific research is developing about the nature of light. These options, which offer us new theories and practices of light, from biophysical chemistry to the lithosphere, also have effects on artistic possibilities. For this reason, renowned experts and institutions from the sciences and arts of light are invited to open up the new horizon of the light spectrum in an exchange of experiences.

Light is a messenger from the universe. The arts are the messengers of light.
