IALD to 'Chase the Dark'.

On November 14, the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) will "Chase the Dark" across the globe with a series of guerilla lighting installations, demonstrating the power of light in urban communities.

Beginning in Sydney, Australia, at 7:00 p.m., the event will follow the setting sun across the globe, illuminating city spaces in Melbourne, Australia; Abu Dhabi, UAE; Dubai, UAE; Berlin, Germany; Stockholm, Sweden; London; New York City; Philadelphia; Washington, D.C.; Chicago; St. Louis; Mexico City; Denver; Seattle; and finally San Francisco.

"Chase the Dark is an opportunity for lighting enthusiasts around the world to share their creativity with the public," says Kevin Theobald, IALD president and associate director at GIA Equation in London.

Each host city will invite participants to shape an urban environment with light, creating miniature lit scenarios over the course of one to two hours. These displays will be installed for just a matter of moments--the images of each light project will be captured permanently on camera and shared on Twitter using the hashtag #IALDchasedark all evening long.

The event will be locally hosted and organized by chapters of the IALD. acdc lighting systems is the lead sponsor for this event and will provide all of the lighting equipment for each city.
