About the workshop:
The workshop is meant for lighting designers, choreographers, dancers, and anyone interested in studying light. Jonathan will talk about lighting technology and human interference. He will also present case studies to showcase use of video as light and the use of types of interfaces other than a lighting desk. In keeping with the multifaceted nature of light, the workshop will be a mix of theory, observation and sensing.

About Jonathan O'Hear
Jonathan O'Hear lives in Switzerland and works primarily as a lighting designer for performing arts. 2013 marked his first exhibition as a contemporary artist and his commitment to the Neopost Foofwa dance company as joint artistic and operations director with Foofwa d'Imobilité. His interests in light revolve around three main themes, light as an artistic medium, the use of new technologies submitted to human interference, and light emitting objects. His work is often tainted by the idea that human imperfection transcends technological limitations. His recent collaborations include choreographers Foofwa d'Imobilité, Marie-Caroline Hominal, Prisca Harsch and sculptor Martin Rautenstrauch. Jonathan has conducted workshops on the use of light as an artistic medium, in the Netherlands, India, South Africa and Mozambique, with the support of Pro Helvetia - Swiss Arts Council. He was invited to show his work by the Villa Bernasconi and the festival Antigel in Geneva.
