Light: as Art and Therapy

May 6, 2010

Jan Willem Campmans is a therapeutic artist whom works with infrared technology. Both his light therapy and paintings are interactive and allows the individuals to either become or create  art.  The way it works is way too complicated for me to explain but if you are curious please check out Campmans’s website .

Anyhow, the light therapy is as he states quite a  simple principle. The individual just has to stand still for 3 minutes and get ‘bodypainted” with light. You may think- how is this therapeutic? Well, the experience of being painted with the light immortalizes the spirit of the individual. The final painting captures an interpretation which enlightens this spirit and energizes the inner-self. Wondering what this would look like? Watch the vid below!

Perhaps this could be inspiration for our design phase?
