Lightwriting: the Results

Lightwriting to Animate Past Landscapes



During this week’s Heritage & Play, we will experiment with lightwriting, an experimental photography technique that can produce fun and surprising interactions with buildings and landscape. Stemming from artists such as Picasso, lightwriting explores long-exposure photography performed within a landscape. We particularly welcome buildings archaeologists who want to experiment with annotating and illuminating features of buildings. We will also have a discussion about possible collaborations with Illuminate York, to best present and situate King’s Manor.
