The Cologne artists’ collective Lichtfaktor uses a variety of real life and computer controlled light sources to produce photos and videos in urban locations by night.
They have produced this short movie in cooperation with light jugglers Optix. It shows the impressive possibilities of that concept.
“Halo” by French artist Aïssa Logerot is a similar project with a different approach. It’s more about the source than the outcome and it utilizes a metaphor of a spraying can.
“halo is a handy light specially dedicated to light-writting. Graffiti artists can conserve their own gesture they have with a spray can. It is possible to change the color and the brightness of the led to change the graffiti’s styles. If the light doesn’t have enough battery, the user must shake it to have energy again.”
The coolest thing is the fact, that the energy source is a battery, that loads with pure, kinematic muscle power. So you have to shake it just like you’d have to shake a real can before you use it. Even the sound should be the same!
