mondo*arc editor to chair first Museum of Architecture ‘live book’ discussion

(UK) – ‘Beyond the Pages – SuperLux: Smart Light Art, Design And Architecture For Cities’ discussion to take place at Fagerhult Lighting Showroom in London on 11 April.

The editor of mondo*arc, Paul James, will chair the first Museum of Architecture’s (MoA) ‘live book’ discussions taking place at the Fagerhult Lighting Showroom in London on 11 April at 6pm. It will address a new global arts movement: ‘smart light’ creations in urban locations. Enabled by electroluminescent systems controllable via semiconductors rather than Edison-era switches, this movement takes light artists, designers and architects out of the confines of traditional art showplaces, to present dynamic creations at scales ranging from intimate to colossal, from footpaths to towering skylines. The editor of SuperLux, Davina Jackson, will explain her observations of today’s new genres of creative lighting in conversation with a panel of experts including Alex Haw, Director, Atmos; Dr Vesna Petresin, Director, Rubedo Limited and Visiting Fellow Goldsmiths, University of London; Kate Harvey, Associate Producer, Artichoke.

A multimedia exhibition displaying recent urban lightworks from cities globally will also be on display in the Fagerhult space during the event.

The event is free to attend. Please register at press@fagerhult.co.uk.
