I recently led a one-day Art Camp workshop at Ivy Tech Community College, Indianapolis. My students made temporary, site specific, light experiments and interventions and shared the results via public media.

Some of our discussions: The mysterious and powerful qualities of light. Making metaphors. Art as an act of temporary transformation. Students also explored using social media as gallery, portfolio, and public forum.

We used a variety of light sources including LEDs, halogen, xenon, incandescent and fluorescent, as well as mirrors, dichroic glass and other materials to create compositions in various man-made and natural environments. Students used smartphones, cameras, laptops, tablets to record their work.
