In the media:
At the re:publica during the closing event (18:30, Stage 1) we will try to set the “light painting world record”. Be part of it!
Together we will create the light painting photograph with the most participants ever. A light painting is a long exposure photograph (e.g. 10 seconds or more) in which you “paint” with lights. More on light paintings in german or english.
When we ask you to – please turn on all kinds of lights. The flashlight function of your smartphone does a good job. But all other reasonably bright lights like Flashlights, bicycle lights or lighters do a good job as well. If you have one, use a fancy or colored light, as the photo will look more interesting with not only white smartphone lights.
When you are ready, we will turn of the lights in the hall and do a 10 second photo. During that these 10 seconds you are “painting” your drawing with your light, as you would on a normal canvas.
Do it! Instead of just moving around your light we reccomend you to try out to draw or to write something. Hearts, Hashtags … we are wondering with what you come up with. Be creative!

Some examples from other events.
Share/tweet the event/photo as you like. Please add the tag #rp15lights.

Note: It was practically impossible to organize everything for official recognition by Guinness before the event. And they might not accept it retroactively. But as long as we know what we did, that is fine for me. And hopefully for you too!
to all the people who helped to make this possible.
