IALD Design Palooza Presents | Aether & Hemera
Written by acdc on January 7, 2014>
acdc are delighted to welcome Aether & Hemera to the London Studio on the 20th February for the first IALD Design Palooza of 2014
- Aether & Hemera are the ancient Greek god and goddess of brighter upper air and daylight. Aether is Claudio Benghi, the media architect; Hemera is Gloria Ronchi, the lighting artist.
- Aether & Hemera is an interdisciplinary collaboration to research the aesthetic challenges of light and its power to trigger emotions and response, creating a sense of identity or setting a mood. This cross-disciplinary cooperation focuses on researching the sensory engagement power of an immaterial force like light and how collaborative participatory arts and design methods can influences our way of living in a variety of contexts, scaling from interiors to urban spaces.
- The aim of Aether & Hemera’s artistic vision is to provoke memories, explore aesthetic interactions and to elicit feelings of connective human experiences in a required-to-participate audience.

The IALD Design Palooza is a series of talks intended primarily, but not exclusively, for IALD student members and emerging professionals interested in careers in lighting design. Some of the world’s most inspiring designers will present their work and show that there’s more to lighting than putting circles on drawings.
