Banho De Luz- A Light Bath Ritual
Location: Carnegie Education Pavilion/Hardy Ivy Park ( John Portman Boulevard and Peachtree Street)
Banho de Luz — A Light Bath Ritual is an Elevate Atlanta 2012 project created by Lillian Blades, Roni Nicole Henderson and Linda Costa. Located at the Carnegie Education Pavilion at Hardy Ivy Park this site specific performance will transform the Pavilion into an enchanted space brimming with mystery and light. This event features illuminated light tapestries by mixed media assemblage artist Lillian Blades which will envelop the Pavilion, creating a glowing cocoon in which the artists hope to inspire and invigorate chosen participants using the power of light. A performance will unfold inside, lead by Lillian and light painting photographer Linda Costa, whose long exposure technique will capture portraits of participants which will then be projected onto a screen directly outside the pavilion. Video stream captures the process and will be transmitted online and shared via projections courtesy of ‘Moving Pictures’ Filmmaker Roni Nicole Henderson’s captive eye. Musical Artist Yamin Semali provides sounds, using spiritually influenced rhythm selections based on Brazilian Candomble, Bahamian Junkanoo and other Diasporic traditions selected for the inspiration each of these traditions have provided the artists in this project.
My photographs are light painted portraits- long exposures created in complete darkness using controlled lighting. All the special effects achieved in my images are done in the moment of taking the photograph, using experimental lighting techniques, not computer graphics. Each image takes between 2-5 minutes to create, while some may take as long as 15-30 minutes in order to achieve particular effects. These longer exposures allow me to create multiple people out of a single person, to add a feeling of time passing or movement in a single shot, and to create amazing special effects before your very eyes, in the moment of creation. I am passionate about my creative process, and have been commissioned for personal and commercial needs such as Album Art, Book Covers, and Fine Art Prints. I’m also known for performing my light painting at live events, where I can create images and share them with the public instantly. In these performances my work is fueled by the energy the audience shares. My unique process captures the essence of the subject I’m working with, creating images that are magical, colorful and bold. I’m a native of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and credit my tropical roots for my love of people, color and movement. I reside in Atlanta, GA with my husband and my daughter, where I participate in various exhibitions and events throughout the year.
