Walking Light is the light painting project made to take part in IALD Chase the Dark event in 2016.

Each year, IALD members and non-members participate in “Chase the Dark,” an international lighting movement that tasks participants to photograph and share displays of light via social media during a 24 hour period as the sun sets westward across the globe. The results capture the creativity and diversity of the lighting design profession.

The 2016 lighting concept was Light Where You Live! The challenge was to show the light where we live and share it on social media. Used shadow, direct light, indirect light, reflection, refraction, landmarks, the sun, moon, and rainbows—anything that connects us to a lighting perspective wherever we are.

We, lighting designer Nargiza Usmanova and photographer Maxim Zinchuk, held a series of photo shoots in two Canada’s city parks: G Ross Lord Park, North York (November 3rd) & Lions Valley Park, Oakville (October 31st). To achieve the shining effect we used flexible Led Neon Flex product by GLLS (USA), 4.5 m long, walking with it between trees.
