___ Gionata Gatto and Mike Thompson launched the Trap Light Project in 2011. The designers are able to trap light in the body of the glass objects using photo-luminescent pigments and the Murano glass-blowing technique. This technique enables the absorption of light, which isthen transmitted again as atmospheric light.

Light can be intensified using bleach, mirrors and lenses. Light can be trapped using photo-luminescent pigments. These are just some of the inspirational lo-tech solutions that we will explore and discuss in the workshop. The central question being how we can make full use of the potential of light.

Participants are encouraged to solve 21st century energy and light pollution problems from a more ‘down to earth’ perspective using an experimental, hands-on approach to concepts and materials. In Recycleight we redefine and reconsider our understanding of light.
