Interior Design Department at Vilnius faculty of Vilnius Academy of Arts invites you to take a part at the creative workshop with the worldwide famous lighting designer Malcolm Innes (http://www.lightartist.co.uk)

Malcolm Innes specializes in architectural lighting, design education, interactive and kinetic art. He helped to earn IALD award (the highest recognition of the lighting design field) to the one of the strongest lighting companies in the world Speirs + Major for the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, the interior of Barajas airport in Madrid, public spaces in Glasgow, Copenhagen Opera House lighting solutions.

The natural environment is a constantly shifting wonder of light, shade and colour; with cycles of days and cycles of seasons; subtleties of shifting patterns, colour and other intangible qualities of light allow us to locate ourselves in place and in time. Yet, too often, our man-made environment ignores these natural rhythms and provides the coolness, pattern and variation of a permanently overcast day. However, with skill, knowledge and creativity, practical and pragmatic solutions can be found to enhance the built environment, to tell a story or express a mood, even to enhance nature, but above all to reinsert the dynamic that bad lighting so often extinguishes.

The lighting technical capabilities and local modeling nuances will be presented, the lighting market and the theory of innovation, the use of different light sources, principles, simple and effective ways to simulate lighting will be introduced to you. Small group projects will be created and presented as the final works of the workshop.

The workshop is organized by the VAA VF Interior Design Department.

The event is supported by the lighting solutions company GAUDRĖ

2 students will be selected from Cirrus network partner schools
