Theme: Women in Lighting & Year of Tolerance
Following the previous 3 editions of light.ication, Light.icationv4.0 returned with a bang. It went GLOBAL!
With the theme of Women in Lighting and UAE's Year of Tolerance, the students and mentors had to create an installation wherever in the world they were which embodied this theme. A total of 6 teams entered the competition with Pakistan, Argentina and Lebanon, joining the local UAE teams.
The winner was Lebanon's Team 5, read about all the installations below.
What the judges had to say:
Both Team 1 and Team 3's installations were highly commended, but alas this year the winner had to be the team from Lebanon. Their depiction and translation of this year's theme's and of course its implementation was a huge success. The use of light and art, and the story of the experience was truly magical. Well done, once again to all the teams, it was a fair effort, and not easy to pick winners. We feel like our job gets harder every year!
