Marco poma - LED lights

Aug 10, 2013, 06:46 PM, Barga, Tuscany, Italy

Marco Poma has just recently exhibited his work using time worn wood and LED lights in the Palazzo Pancrazi (video here) not content with the success of that exhibition , he is now working on another project in his workshop/studio up on the hills above Barga which he is intending to bring down and show to the public later on this month.

As can be heard in the short conversation with Marco recorded this afternoon, there is always a philosophical concept centred around his work and as so often appears in his work, the joining and merging of old and new.

He has created a lighting system of seven movable bars, each containing a bank of LED lights with which to illuminate a series of portraits of the jazz musicians who will be playing at the Eno Jazz sessions towards the end of this month as part of the Barga Jazz Festival 2013.

This year the Enojazz sessions are taking place at the Villa Libano and photographers Debora Caterina Salvi and Keane will be on hand to take a series of portraits of the musicians before and after they go on stage in a specially prepared setting lit by Marco Poma’s lighting system. - those portraits can be seen here:
