EDAD404 Advanced Lighting/City Lights 3 cr.


This course aims to explore light as a sculptural and spatial element in the making of art and architecture. The student is introduced to the practice of light as a medium in relation to objects, spaces, buildings and site-specific installation. The class focuses primarily on the application of light as a transformative element in visual practices. This course is designed to familiarize the student with a wide variation of approaches and practices and to encourage a sense of discovery when considering the medium of light in relation to sculptural, spatial, and architectural explorations and in everyday observations. Some Wednesday afternoon field trips to professional companies such as Reflex Lighting, Color Kinetics and downtown sites in the city of Boston are included. Students also complete an off-campus group project.
