MUU Monday: Light in Art and Light as Art 26 November 2012 MUU gallery

valokuusi_humalisto_smallLight in Art and Light as Art
Lecture on the use of light as an interface between performative and visual arts (in Finnish).

Lighting designer Tomi Humalisto, PhD
The lecture is in Finnish.

The lecture examines works that use light as their material on the interface between visual and performative art. Installations, sculptures and even community art projects often come close to being performative environments that can be considered performances of a kind. The visual form of performances can also be considered a work of art.

The rapid development of video and LED technology has given rise to interesting visual solutions which are nevertheless ambivalent vis-à-vis their art context. The examples discussed in the lecture suggest the listeners consider the definition and boundaries of genres, but also the possibilities for their conscious transgression.

Tomi Humalisto (PhD/Thtr, MA/Thtr, MA/Art) is an independent lighting designer, lighting design researcher and teacher. He has worked as lighting designer in the fields of contemporary dance and theatre and performance art since the 1990s. He has also conducted art projects in the field of visual art. Experiences of Belgian contemporary theatre and independent theatre productions in Finland at the turn of the millennium inspired Humalisto to study the relationship between established conventions and new performance concepts. In his recent artistic doctoral thesis for the Theatre Academy (2012) he examines the need for change in relation to the practices of lighting design. Humalisto’s most recent artistic design project was for the success play Silent Bridges in the Seinäjoki City Theatre.

The lecture is a part of the MUU 25 Years Programme.
