Light Where You Live!”

We participated in 2016’s Chase the Dark event, a one-night global celebration of light organized by IALD (International Association of Lighting Designers). The event in Chicago was sponsored by our manufacturer- Vode Lighting.

“Chase the Dark,” an international lighting movement, tasked all participants to photograph and share displays of light via social media during a 24 hour period as the sun sets westward across the globe. It began in Australia and made its way across each time zone moving west.

This year the challenge was to show the light where you live and share it on social media using #IALDChaseDark.

Our scavenger hunt chasing the dark started at Chicago’s IALD HQ and led us through the Chicago River Walk to Millennium Park. We captured the dark contrasting with different forms of light from direct, indirect, refraction to reflection, showcasing Chicago’s River landmarks and the Cloud Gate Sculpture (aka the “Bean”) at Chicago’s Millennium Park.
