Process Step

Creating a light intervention can be a great way to enliven a place even in winter. Additionally, used by the community, it can increase the sense of ownership of a place and let people experience a sense of belonging. It is a fairly easy process. The projector is a simple, accessible and flexible technology. Projection onto a wall or fabric is relatively easy and very eye-catching. In this tutorial you will learn how to make light installations using a projector and simple materials.
