Colour burst residency
For the past few months artist Chris Plant, a specialist in interactive design and projection mapping, has been developing new work informed by the research at Aston Institute of Photonics Technology. Visitors to Lightfest will have the first chance to see the fruits of this residency, including some ingenious toys you can play with yourself.
Throughout the day we’ll be screening a selection of short films for all ages on the theme of light. Includes brilliant animation from Japanese collective Tochka, and award-winning short Luminaris about a romance in a lightbulb factory.
