Passports + Tutorials

1. EVERYONE BRING YOUR PASSPORTS TOMORROW. You will all need to go to the Japan Center to buy Japan Rail tickets. They will cost approximately 149pounds. But if we don't buy them before leaving we will spend 4-5 times as much on train tickets when we are there. You will need your passports in order to purchase the rail tickets. I will be going down there around 1pm so if you want to go as a group - meet me @ AA and we'll head down together. (it's at piccadilly circus)

2. Tutorials in Building 37 Ground Floor Front

unit trip

Democratically I think I got enough responses to proceed this instance. I will tell my dad to take it serious that we are up for it. It will definately be held in English which saves me and Miho from a disaster. He mentioned that he could probably ask a well known lighing consultant to come to the workshop.
Here is this guy's website. Have a look. interesting work.

unit trip

hi everybody. I told my dad about the unit trip to Tokyo which made him quite excited. He was wondering if he could organise a workshop with us and other university students plus invited lighting designers from Japan for a day or so. The content is not specified yet but it will be about aesthetics of lighting design. What do you people think about this?

Is Track Lighting Really the Future?

So, it seems that after a day of reviewing photographs, sketches, drawings, and a video, we've decided that London's gallery lighting on the whole is really rather uninspired. Track lighting, embedded halogens, and the odd fluorescent strip seem to make up the not-so-vast array of lighting strategies currently used to illuminate this city's art.

I wanted to just post a few of your explorations, ideas, and techniques that were mentioned during today's conversation - and that you may want to refer to as you continue to develop your gallery documentation.

> documenting the disparity between night and daytime readings > the range of reflective to matt surfaces > the negative cast > thermal imaging > warm - cool light tones > carving illuminated space > the penetration and depth of light through various skin/surface thicknesses > registering light from screens (videos, TV’s, etc) > ceiling texture > becoming selective about registering lighting effects on only walls, ceilings, floors, or edges > light by numbers > Patrick’s colour patch test > folding paper to 'repair' ineffective lighting > grid distortion test > cloudy light > martin's ricocheted light > controlling light dissipation > motion > surface vs. volumetric registration of light > layered light > boxing light > regularity of bulb change and resultant lighting effect > transition from natural to artificial light <

A reminder that you should bring 2 A2's on Friday - and we'll meet in the AA Bar and then walk over to Morwell Street room 1.05 from there.

The image below is the one I mentioned today by photographer Andreas Gursky - it’s a shot of the ceiling of the General Assembly in Niemeyer’s Brasilia.
