The Light Interventions Handbook details all the steps to successfully build light installations! It includes how to use a projector, build content, planning and goal making steps, as well as how to reflect and take the intervention's outcomes forward.
In winter 2019/2020, the Oslo School of Architecture and Design masters students Ann-Kristin Eriksen, Chia Han Hsiao, Ørjan Laxaa in collaboration with Nabolagshager and Oslo Living Lab under the PlaceCity Project designed and executed a light intervention in Grønland, Oslo. To do this, the team strategised an intervention involving light as a co-creation design process to empower youth to take ownership of their schoolyard and experience a sense of belonging.
Design students made a projection trolley to make it easier to transport the equipment, and created a handbook on how to make light installations with a projector and simple materials. Both the projection trolley and the handbook will help youth to continue exploring the field of light installations and motivate them to design and execute by themselves future light interventions at the school. At the end of the project, design students and youth set up the light installation at Hersleb’s schoolyard, creating a unique and fully-customised space for high school students, teachers and passers-by.
