Light is the source of life, energy and inspiration. Over the last century, people have rethought the light stream and turned it into a real art. The play of light can change the perception of space, turn walls into panels and create incredible images. How has the understanding of light changed? Who turned the light beam into an art tool?

In the 1920s and 1930s, the image was transformed. Color technologies have changed with lighting technology. By the 1950s and 1960s, this transition had reached a peak and was expressed in new forms of art. There were neon objects, lumino-kinetic sculptures, light boxes, glass kaleidoscopes and even light ballet.

In the early 50's Yves Klein (Yves Klein) began to paint monochrome paintings. In 1958 he arranged an exhibition of his works. The audience was waiting ... empty room. So the artist conveyed sensuality. Three years later the world saw a fiery picture, written by a gas burner on a cardboard surface.

The study of light led the masters to work with space. The lighting of the rooms was now perceived as an artistic task. Among those who worked in this field, it is worth noting Gianni Colombo and James Turrell.

Dan Flavin increased the light patterns to the size of light spaces. Neill Bel and Jenny Holzer used LEDs in the light panels.

In the 1960s, the ZERO movement appeared, which included Gunter Ueker, Heinz Mack, Otto Piene, Hermann Goepfer. They made the light the main thing in their work. In the creation of the movement there are reliefs with a reflecting effect, metal elements and even light mechanisms.

In 1963 Flavin began working with fluorescent lamps (not with neon). Light boxes contained a light that could transform and transform space.
