The IESNYC is celebrating the 20th year of the Student Lighting Competition.

View the talents of our future lighting designers at this Exhibition and Reception and join in on the excitement as the winners of the Student Lighting Competition are announced.

In an ever-expanding universe, light connects and unifies. Beneath the sun’s rays, plants feed, flourish, grow; moonlight guides baby turtles safely from their nests to the sea. Yet, the sun’s harsh rays can burn and blind and moonlight creates space in darkness for danger. Humanity balances between natural and electric light, creating a complex and ever-evolving entropic relationship. Light illuminates our lives but hides our skies; it causes us to evolve, flourish, and decay. This year’s theme, LUMIMORPHOSIS, challenges students to create a project that explores the relationship between light and growth.
