in collaboration with Caland Lyceum, Damstede Lyceum and Metis Montessori Lyceum

Students from three different technasia schools learn from and with light art during the subject R&D: Research and Design. The students are creatively challenged to think about the process of making light art. From idea to concept to realization. The students work towards a working prototype for the light festival.

In the coming weeks, the students of the three technasia will be given a special assignment. They will immerse themselves in the making of light art, in conveying a message and what effect you want to achieve with your audience. The assignment reads:

The client expects a model of a light object that could actually be placed in the Amsterdam Light Festival walking route. The light object appeals to people of all ages and cultures and makes people think about the theme. It emphasizes the positive aspects and possibilities of nature..
