LightTAG is an Arts and Science collaboration between Artist Tine Bech at the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) and the South East Physics Network (SEPnet): University of Surrey; Royal Holloway; University of Kent; Queen Mary’s College; University of Southampton and the University of Sussex.
The project is funded by Mediabox and South East Physics Network (SEPnet).
LightTAG is an ambitious youth-led project, which will enable 72 young people, from six communities to build confidence and achievement through a unique science and media art collaboration. Focused on using light and creative photography to produce light drawings (light graffiti) and light animations, the project is intentionally accessible for young people. The project will provide an opportunity for participants to express themselves through light and create a high profile, visually engaging outcome which challenges common perceptions concerning media, science and youth culture. The project will culminate in a large celebratory event for all the participants, their family and friends at the BFI Southbank. The exhibition will then tour all the Universities involved.
