Light2.3 Light Impressions Get Humans Together

Every two years the International Students Week Ilmenau - the ISWI - takes place in Ilmenau/Germany. About 400 students from all over the world come together for discussion, lectures, workshops, creative work and of course, party...

FEM e.V. and it's VJ Crew reply2all organised a project called "L.i.g.h.t." - Light Impressions Get Humans Together. The aim of the project is to provide workshops and competitions in interactive videoinstallations, collaborative filming, stop-motion-animations and live VJ'ing.

This year's event is the second try after the great success of L.i.g.h.t. in 2005.

The basic idea of L.i.g.h.t. is to transform an old glass-factory building - the "Fischerhütte" - into a media-art lounge & point of information where young people can come together to know each other and stay informed about all aspects of the ISWI. Visual contents from other ISWI groups will be used in the video installations and at the end of the ISWI there will be a media-art-night to reflect the whole ISWI week. National and international video artists will give lectures and workshops for a video art group of ISWI participants and interested listeners. Furthermore, the student TV-station iSTUFF will broadcast the liveshow ISWISION from a studio inside the Fischerhütte.
