Light is one of the creative design elements of the 21st century. Innovative developments open up new windows of opportunities and options on-again. Progressive techniques account for ideas for ecological and sparing light solutions and new approaches to art including photography. Light is no longer just flat or one-dimensional illumination but offers architects, designers as well as the artist JanLeonardo possibilities to fantasy in space visions.
