The ENLIGHT (European Light Expression Network) started in May 2016 will have a duration of 20 month and it is implemented under the Creative Europe Programme.
The project’s key objectives are to develop new audiences for multidisciplinary visual arts, light art in particular, also raising awareness among the arts community as well as general public. Through the format of “artist residencies”, the aim is to develop a brand associated with high-quality experiences for innovative light art production.

Artists of Media Art Festival
Chiara Passa: visual artist (Rome 1973) working in media art since 1997. My artistic research analyses differences in virtual spaces through a variety of techniques technologies and devices – often using virtual reality and augmented reality technologies as an artistic medium. So, I work with animations, net-artworks, interactive and site-specific video-installations and VR video-sculptures and video objects.
Robert Lisek: artist, mathematician and composer who focuses on systems and processes (computational, biological, social). He is involved in the number of projects focused on radical art strategies, hacktivism and tactical media.
Noise Orchestra: Manchester sound artists David Birchall and Vicky Clarke. They use light, electronics, turntables and graphical scores to translate light, images and objects into NOISE; a process called graphical sound. Their practice operates at the intersection of art, experimental music and technology and manifests in performances, DIY instrument making, workshops and installations; all inspired by the photo-phonic principles of synthesizing sound from light.
