The Light Art docuseries


We present LUCES, the first webseries dedicated to Light Art. Thirteen episodes to discover thirteen artists of light. The docuseries, conceived and coordinated by Light Art curator Gisella Gellini and director Cecilia Brianza, was made by the students of the Light and Colour between Art and Design course at the School of Design of Politecnico di Milano.

"I felt it was important for the students to visit the studios of the Light Art artists, and to have the opportunity to hold in-depth and comprehensive talks with them, in order to directly understand their spirit and technique. I also asked them to document the highlights of their encounters by summarising what they had perceived. Only in this way could the subject matter of my course be one of the inspirations for their professional activity,' says Gisella Gellini.

From these meetings, the students made documentaries, lasting 10-15 minutes, on thirteen light artists: Nino Alfieri, Carlo Bernardini, Marco Brianza, LeoNilde Carabba, Fabrizio Corneli, Nicola Evangelisti, Alessandro Lupi, Federica Marangoni, Vincenzo Marsiglia, Pietro Pirelli, Sebastiano Romano, Paolo Scirpa and Massimo Uberti.

"The students, working in groups, took care of all phases of the video production. To enable the students to do a good job, we held a photography class during the course in collaboration with the Milan Polytechnic's Image Lab. It was certainly an exciting project, in just a few minutes they managed to tell the story of the work of some artists by highlighting their light installations. It was a very stimulating job for me, I followed the students step by step, giving valuable directing and editing advice and trying to convey my passion for the seventh art,' comments Cecilia Brianza.

Episodes of the docuseries LUCES will be published on the YouTube @LucesLightArt channel starting from Thursday 2 March 2023.
