Author, Producer & Mastermind
is a light painter, a light draughtsman, and a light designer. On his travels from Europe to Africa, from India to Japan, he traces the different manifestations of light, experimenting with colour spaces and shadows. With this in mind, it is only logical that Heinz Kasper does not limit himself only to the institutions of art during his research trips. Alongside his light designs for museums and his participation in international light festivals, he also mounts interior and exterior architectural projects as well as temporary exhibitions and other projects related to all genres of the pictorial arts. Moreover, time and again the Austrian creates and stages illuminated ``moving pictures`` in which nature itself is brought to speak. In the end, everything is light.
