My Journey Sculpting with Light
Mark Chai's art is part of his spiritual journey. He creates three-dimensional pieces that are organic, abstract and conceptual. His inspiration comes from his love for the ocean, fascination with the structures of exotic flora and fauna, and a growing awareness of his genealogy.

cielo, luz y fotografia
A los 13 años descubre y se enamora de la fotografía, el cielo y la luz. En esa búsqueda estudia Arquitectura en la UTFSM, fotografía en la escuela Cámara Lúcida y un Diplomado en Iluminación en la PUC; y se incorpora a la Sociedad Astronómica de Valparaíso y Viña del Mar, SAVAL, institución de la cual es vicepresidente a partir de 2013. Además es parte de la iniciativa NOCHEZERO, plataforma de discusión sobre el futuro de la iluminación de nuestras ciudades.
Todas estas pasiones la han llevado a enfocar sus intereses profesionales y trabajo artístico hacia la astrofotografía, la contaminación lumínica y la iluminación urbana.
Sus imágenes han sido exhibidas y publicadas en diversos medios, tales como el India Astro-Photo Festival, Nueva Delhi (2012); la revista Luminous de Philips (2014) y recientemente por el European Southern Observatory (ESO).

Painting with Light
Although not from last week's PechaKucha Night in Tokyo, we continue to celebrate creativity this week by highlighting a great presentation every day, today turning our attention to "Painting with Light" from PKN Barcelona Vol. 10. Photographer Mateusz Staniewski presents a selection of light works and a series of incredible images that were all created without any use of Photoshop. In the presentation, he shares various techniques on how to paint with light.
Light Painting in Osnabrueck
Shown at Osnabrueck's PechaKucha Night Vol. 6 earlier this year, the photos included in this post are part of some "light painting" work by Christoph Abé and Kai Bornemann. PKN Osnabrueck organizer Clemens Gruber has sent us some text in German to accompany the photos, but do note that all of them do not use any Photoshop trickery. Wenn die von den Eltern vermittelten Werte bei ihren erwachsenen Kindern manch roten Leitfaden darstellen, welcher sicher durch die Gesellschaft führt, dann darf man als Papa und als Mama gleichermaßen stolz sein. Denn diese Werte, dieser Anstand und diese Bildung sind das Ergebnis einer langen Reise, welche durch mehrere Generationen führt. Kennst du die Stille im Lärm, welche dich im Alltag umgibt und die du als unangenehm wahrnimmst, da immer um dich herum etwas passieren muß?! Genieß diese kleine Insel und nutze sie zum Durchatmen ... sie ist dein Erholungsort im Dschungel der Hektik. An was glaubst du, wenn du an das Wort „GLAUBE“ denkst? An was denkst du, wenn du an das Wort „Nachdenken“ glaubst? Glaubst du, dass du WIRKLICH die Fähigkeit der Reflexion besitzt? Oder glaubst du nicht eher doch an den Spiegel, den du dir selber vorhälst, damit du nicht weiter Nachdenken musst, wer du WIRLICH bist? Das Licht am Ende eines Tunnels ist in vielerlei Hinsicht interpretierbar: Man kann es als Neuanfang sehen, als helfende Hand, als wärmenden Sonnenschein im tristen Alltag oder einfach nur als das, was es ist: Die Helligkeit, welche uns immer wieder lächeln lässt, welche uns gerne an das erinnern lässt, wofür es sich zu Leben lohnt: die Einmaligkeit von besonderen, hellen Momenten! Unverdaute Vertrautheit gleicht einer unverbrauchten Seele: Naiv, flügelspreizend und ohne jegliche Bedenken dem Risiko begegnend, welches einem in Form von angeblich abgeklärten Menschen ins offene Messer rennen lässt.
PechaKucha Light Box
And following-up on the previous post about PechaKucha Night in Panama Vol. 8, here's a look at a terrific light box that was produced for the event -- even better, here's a Facebook gallery that shows how it was built.
Painting with Light
Light painting isn't a new art form by any stretch, but recently it's been revitalized and enhanced by the DIY community. In today's edition of Presentation of the Day, we see the extent to which the medium has grown. In his presentation (from PKN Barcelona Vol. 10) Mateusz Staniewski enlightens us on the finer details of the photographic art. The techniques he goes into include light-stenciling, freezing, and painting; when combining these methods the results are both literally and figuratively luminous. There's much more to be seen than said here, so for further illumination check out the full presentation.
Silo 468 Light Art Project
In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Frankfurt Vol. 21) Tapio Rosenius of Lighting Design Collective (Madrid, Spain) talks about his organization's work on the Silo 468 light art project for the City of Helsinki. This urban light art installation uses wind, swarm intelligence, and logarithmic lighting controls to achieve its artistic vision. The project is part of the 2012 Helsinki World Design Capital initiative. This presentation was given prior to the project's completion, but to see its construction and debut, check out LDC's Vimeo post.
The Light Within
Portrait photographer Amy Whilton wants to give everyone a mask, so they can divulge their honest selves. In "The Light Within" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 19, she says wants them to take the mask off and fearlessly continue to let their true selves shine. This is the light within each person that Amy tries to capture with her camera.
Laser walls, UV inks, lit scaffolding structures, and light forms of all kinds; James Clar's work is nothing short of brilliant. Media artist working with forms of light James Clar discusses his work. In "Light Affectations" we see that, much like the way television manipulates and controls light to convey the entertainment medium, James uses three-dimensional light sculpture to convey emotion, data, moments in history, political relationships, and more.
Light is the Theme
Stunning works of projection-map lighting paired with works of modern architecture -- what's not to love? At a special edition of PKN Chicago set during the 2014 American Institute of Architects National Convention, we see the luminous work of Chicago-based artist Petra Bachmeier. In "Light is the Theme" she details her collaborative, Luftwerk, which focuses on projection-map lighting on iconic works of modern architecture.
Shedding Light on Paradise
Alison Beste uses light to examine the relationship between artificial and natural constructs. Artist and photographer Alison Beste’s work explores the boundaries between the built and natural world through the use of light effects on the ocean horizon. In “Shedding Light on Paradise” from PKN Honolulu Vol. 20, Alison speaks about light from cities, vessels, and beacons as powerful metaphors for the ways we interact, manage, and attempt to control our environment.
A Light in the Dark
“This picture has been taken 10 of 15 minutes after a vacuum bomb has been executed in the capital. This man is walking with his dog near the bomb and he says ‘I will live my life’.” People can show extreme resilience under extraordinary situations. In A light in the Dark from PechaKucha Night Maastricht’s event at MSM, Speaker Mohammed Mahdi shows Yemeni people in their daily lives. He is impressed to see how they manage to progress under extreme situations which could be categorized as extremely hard life.
