The Department of Three-Dimensional Design in the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) focuses among other things on product design at the interface of architecture and art. During the summer semester 2014, students turned their attention to artificial light as a medium determining location and space. “Light” stands for both light and lightweight, the term “thing” for the palpable object and, in its Germanic derivation, for a place of assembly. The work produced light clouds, inter­active installations and product experiments that support an informal use of public and private spaces in the dark.
