The Library of Light
The Library of Light, an evolving research project, and a repository for the interdisciplinary investigation of light.
The Library of Light is an evolving research project imagined by a group of artists and academics, led by artist Jo Joelson and lighting designer Hansjörg Schmidt (both based at Rose Bruford College).
The vision for the Library of Light is a repository for the interdisciplinary investigation of light – a living archive that demonstrates the breadth of lighting practice across disciplines to contribute to and develop our understanding of light as a creative medium and its impact on our cultural history.
Added to some of the artefacts in this collection are the Library’s books specifically on lighting design / designers as well as some books on lighting artists such as James Turrell, Olafur Eliasson, and Dan Flavin.
