(USA) – University of Texas graduate Po-Yang Sung brings theatrical lighting experience to Boston studio team.
Available Light has announced the expansion of its Boston studio with the hiring of Po-Yang Sung.
Sung is a Taiwanese native fresh from The University of Texas at Austin, where he received his MFA in Lighting Design. In school, he lit a variety of performance styles ranging from drama to dance to musical comedy. Prior to joining Available Light, Sung served as Resident Lighting Designer at Michigan’s Thunder Bay Theatre Company. His thoughtful approach encompasses inspiration from the diversity of both nature and culture; in fact, his graduate thesis – lighting design for an international airport terminal ‘Wing It’ – developed from his desire to apply his theatrical background aesthetic and his curiosity about the world to the design of an iconic architectural space.
“The addition of Po-Yang supports our practice of infusing theatrical lighting techniques within architecture, museum exhibition, and tradeshow environments. We are excited to have him in our field and in our studio and we look forward to what Po-Yang has to teach us,” said Steven Rosen, FIALD, President and Creative Director of Available Light.
