Light installations are pieces of art that utilize light (either natural or artificial) as the core medium for creation or presentation. The light medium can be in the form of flames, fire, fluorescent lights, incandescent lights, neon lights, LED, electric light bulbs, or even natural sunlight.
Light installation artists harness light to craft engaging, beautiful, and thought-provoking creative statements. These artistic works can be permanent, contemporary, or modern and range from subtle indoor installations to large, outdoor public art. James Turrell, Robert Irwin, and Dan Flavin are arguably some of the biggest and most respected light installation artists.
