A LIGHTING EVENT CROSSING THE GLOBE ON 14 NOVEMBER 2013
The International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) will “Chase the Dark” across the globe with a series of guerilla lighting installations, demonstrating the power of light in urban communities, on 14 November 2013. acdc LED Ltd. is the global sponsor for this event, and will provide the lighting equipment for each city.
“IALD’s Chase the Dark is an opportunity for lighting enthusiasts around the world to share their creativity with the public,” said Kevin Theobald, IALD President 2012 + 2013 and Associate Director at GIA Equation in London, UK. “But it’s also a chance for us to unite IALD’s many local communities around the globe in one activity that emphasizes and champions the power of light in human life.”
IALD architectural lighting designers from eight counties spanning eight time zones will take part in this global event. Each host city will invite participants to shape an urban environment with light, creating several miniature lit scenarios over several hours. These displays will be installed for just a matter of moments - the images of each light project will be captured permanently on camera and shared on Twitter using the hashtag #IALDchasedark all evening long.
