Jonathan Rush/UK

Are we still lighting designers?

Presentation date: 24. October
Presentation time: 12:15

Jonathan Rush will question the nature and roles that lighting designers are expected to fulfil today, and expound on his claims. The paper will debate some of the changes currently underway, discuss lighting designers’ roles in them, and perhaps suggest that the term “Lighting Designer” is simply not suitable anymore. He assumes that more change is coming, and if lighting designers do not embrace and lead this change they may be overtaken.
