The work of lighting design is like painting a picture but with paint called light on black canvas called darkness. The lighting designer’s mission is to come up with ideas for illuminating our contemporary nightscapes so flooded in light pollution in ways more beautiful, comfortable, and efficient, and then to bring this to reality accurately and swiftly. Lighting is not simply about lighting things up. It expresses an identity, symbolizes a policy and conveys a message
