Graffiti-inspired light writing has potential with Halo
Light writing has been an interesting element of photography for some time. What is light writing? An extension of stop-motion animation. If you set your shutter speed real low, say a four to 30-second exposure, and take a light source, like a flashlight, then move the light source from one direction to another or spell something out with it before the shutter reopens, this creates the effect of motion in the picture.
Paris-based designer Aí¯ssa Logerot has come up with an interesting approach to light writing. He has designed, with graffiti artists in mind, a “spray can” that has an LED that shines out of the nozzle, which allows for easier handling when light writing. There is also an option to change the colour and brightness of the light, and, if the light isn’t bright enough, you can shake the can to recharge it.
The Halo doesn’t seem to be on sale anywhere yet, but I am sure someone will pick it up soon.
