We proudly present LPWA Paris Meet-up 2018, which was in May 16-19. This meet-up is dedicated to International Day of Light by UNESCO, as major final event of International Light Painting Day 2018. This article will be filled step by step with more and more details about the event, because we have tons of photos and videos and we need to edit it.
The Alliance managing Paris Meet-up in collaboration with Ligue Francophone De Light Painting (LFLP).
The Alliance's and Ligue's artists were lucky to perform our art support for IDL inaugural ceremony in UNESCO Headquarters, where we had planning, organizing and executed absolutely unique art performance - participative light painting image, done by IDL attendees and guests under our control. Documentary photos by Neil Freistad, Melisa Lefebvre, Samuel Dereuder, Vincent Gerber, Stephane Babatasi, MASS, LundiNata and unknown photographer.
This is first time when light painting was realized by such and honored participants: Nobel laureates, diplomats, scientists, industry and society leaders. Few hundreds people became an artists in just 50 seconds!
We gratefully hope that this unexpected art experience will attract someone from IDL attendees and guests to get more interest in light painting itself and light painters in their countries.
This LP image was done in UNESCO Congress hall, with small LED key-chains.
