How dark is it in The Netherlands at night and who is having vision problems? This is a question Ronald Bierings and Nomdo Jansonius asked themselves some time ago. To find an answer they developed a mobile app that allows you to do some research on light in your own area towards the rest of The Netherlands and which reveals the status of your own sight. By downloading and using this free app you help the research to eye diseases in The Netherlands. The conclusion of the research will tell which streets are too dark and need more light to prevent accidents.
Great news! The Italian Noumeda Carbone, one of the illustrators of the playing cards from last year's Amsterdam Light Festival work House of Cards, is shortlisted for the World Illustration Awards! The AOI (Association of Illustrators) World Illustration Awards is UK's most comprehensive and significant award show. This year the organization welcomes the American Directory of Illustration to create the show.
