Light as a Creative Tool

Making and teaching Light Art.
Maja Petric, 
Ph.D. in Digital Arts and Experimental Media

Maja will be presenting her practice based creative research on transforming the poetic experience of space. As a creative tool she use cutting-edge technology and especially light through which the space is experienced emotionally. Her focus has been on innovative experience that engages perception, emotion, and imagination. During experimentations across different mediasheI discovered that light is an immensely potent tool to create poetic transformations of environments. Since then she have been studying and practicing how to manipulate senses by calibrating properties of light in purpose of art. Light as a tool has immense transformative power, especially when synthesizing both its creative and scientific properties.

What fascinates her the most about the essential nature of light is that it is primordial, it has existed since the beginning of time, and as such humans have innate response to it. Light is everywhere, it enables life, and conditions growth. It is also ephemeral and mysterious and as such it can be a potent artistic tool. Evolution of her creative practice has brought her to evidance-based research that investigates health benefits of light, art, and biophilia (nature inspired design) in purpose of creating immersive art that is driven by notions of health.
