projects in the intersections of light, space and interaction
Wellington LUX 2011 is an intensive two-day symposium with an associated exhibition that explores the intersections of light, space and interaction. Bringing together leading international practitioners (artists, designers and researchers) using technology and light in new and dynamic ways, Wellington LUX maps out the leading edge in visualisation and immersive techniques using light in physical space.
The main venue is the College of Creative Arts, Massey University, and the symposium takes place on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th July 2011.Several exhibited pieces will also be on display alongside the two-day symposium, celebrating creativity and light. Following on from the success of Oslo LUX - a one day event with associated artworks exploring the overlaps between light, space and interaction - Wellington LUX also features a selection of national and international speakers including many renowned practitioners; artists, designers and architects, with the symposium containing elements that appeal to the general public, professional practice and academic research.
Wellington LUX is hosted by WATT, a CoCA research cluster, in partnership with the Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO). WATT is a team of internationally and nationally active researchers at
the College of Creative Arts, Massey University who are visualizing new immersive and responsive environments through the application of advanced lighting technologies. Their crossdisciplinary research projects explore the intersections of digital installation, performance, architectural space, public sculpture, moving image and media art, aiming to provoke an interactive and emotional experience prompted by social interaction.
