Colin Ball leads the London office of BDP’s award winning Lighting Team. From a background education in architecture Colin has worked as a Lighting Designer for 21 years where many projects have a regular use of saturated colours. Colin has developed a series of lectures that look at how Light in Faith is represented from historical, religious and psychological perspectives in architecture and contemporary art, which he has delivered across the UK, Europe, Middle East and the Americas including an international survey on the use of Blue Light. Colin's talk will be The Colour of White Light: Over 21 years of Lighting Architecture I will show how the millennial love of saturated colours has evolved into a subtle and nuanced use of light and tone to still use colours in a very translucent manner, informing what we see as White. I’ve studied in detail on how the Red and Blue components of Light have a more powerful effect on us than just our vision.

Colourful Shadows by Malgosia Benham
Step inside the light and explore the colourful mixing of shadows through interaction and play. You’ll create shadows of three different colours – cyan, magenta and yellow. Block the light source to create your own eye-catching shadows and unexpected colour combinations of white, black, red, green and blue.
