Light Graffiti Masters: LICHTFAKTOR
Tue, 06/02/2009 - 06:44
Way back I think more than one year ago we wrote an article about light graffiti with amazing images. Some of those images were from LICHTFAKTOR, a collective of artists from Cologne, Germany. Now we think they deserve a full feature on the blog with videos and images. Be prepared because it is simply fantastic.
The members of LICHTFAKTOR use light to give expression to their creativity. They take advantage of a variety of light sources to produce photos and videos in cities by night. The Cologne artists’ collective, consisting of VJ $ehvermögen (photographer and VJ since 1997 with many years of experience in the event field) and JIAR (communications designer and graffiti artist), experiments with the possibilities yielded by bulb (long-term) exposure and painting. Their aim is to explore all aspects of “lightwriting” and to develop it further. The LICHTFAKTOR crew intentionally uses the entire space in which a particular work is produced and integrates it into their photos and animated films in such a way that it’s not just a backdrop but a part of the work itself.
