Lust for Light is the Hannah Stouffer‘s book published by Gingko Press that reinvents boundaries of light and makes it the protagonist. If in the past the light source was used as a mere tool, both in the paintings and in the photographs, this time takes on a leading role.
According to Hannah, the art form that allows the light to free itself from the constraints is precisely that of the art installation and it is for this reason that in the book the interventions of artists such as Liz West, Miguel Chevalier, Yayoi Kusama, James Clar, and Jun Hao Ong are told. The author tells:
“All of the artists in this book are working to recreate its likeness, utilize it as a source of their work, and capture the inspiring glow that it produces; there is both a fascination and familiarity with this elemental, undeniably appealing form of energy, which is both tangible and completely uncontainable.”
