In every century light had a different meaning and symbols, and as a medium of expression it was used with different intensity and purpose. Light still inspires and intrigues artists. Events included in the project More Light!:
→ 18 November at 6 PM — opening of installation by Dominka Błaszczyk Peleng with audiovisual project 4×4 by Jan Dybała Jr and set by DJ MÄI / Fabryka Porcelany, Katowice
In the place of work Dominka Błaszczyk will build with ultraviolet light constructions inspired by children’s paintings of homes. Music by dj Mäi will make the connection with the installation more theatric, which will allow the participants to create their own intimate narration. The author wants to enquire the relation between place you live in and work. Function of a living-space changed with the character of work, which time and spatial borders have blurred. Traveling for work purpose and working at home significantly influenced relations in public and private space.

Lumière II is an amazing artistic experience, an audio visual show, connecting sound with phenomenal visuals based on a laser show. The name of the show relates to two significations. First one, as the author himself claims, is a reference to the beginnings of the cinema and Lumière brothers. Second one is the meaning of the word, which in French simply means „light”. The show Lumière II consist of powerful lasers flashing with light, creating shapes and symbols, while at the same time a seperate audio-engine generates rhythmical, expanded structures, which compound of spectral sounds and basses.
