The Spotlight Wall Art Project, created by the C3 Agency, has been awarded the top prize in a national competition, Best of Design 2014. The competition was hosted by American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and Core77.

The Spotlight Wall Art Project is an installation that was designed to draw attention to the victims of domestic violence and abuse. The piece consists of hundreds of small spotlights that are affixed to a wall. When switched on, each spotlight casts a beam of light into the center of the installation, creating a “spotlight” for each victim.

The piece was inspired by actress Kristina Cohen’s experience with domestic abuse and her ongoing efforts to bring awareness to the issue. Kristina is an advocate for victims of domestic abuse and is also an ambassador for One Billion Rising, an organization founded by Eve Ensler which seeks to end violence against women.*

The Spotlight Wall Art Project, a combination of wall art, lighting and music created by the team at High Quality Light, has won 1st Place in the Lighting Design Category at the 2014 International Interior Design Awards. The competition received more than 1,300 entries from all over the world, with only six awards being given for lighting design.

The Spotlight Wall Art Project is designed to create a unique visual and audio experience, by combining video and nature scenes incorporated into moving light boxes that play on two large screens. In addition to being visually appealing, it also adds a high level of sophistication to any environment.

New York City-based High Quality Light worked closely with Boston-based award-winning production company Bullfrog Films to create a video that was integrated into the projector that displays on the screens. Bullfrog Films provided footage of their award-winning film “The Cove”, which won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature in 2010. The video displays two main locations: the shores of Taiji Cove in Japan and the Sistine chapel in Vatican City. The scenes are juxtaposed to each other as one screen plays the Taiji Cove footage while the screen next to it plays footage from The Sistine Chapel.

The Spotlight Wall Art Project, created by Amanda Schutz and Melanie Rabe, won First Place in the Art Gallery category and People’s Choice Award at the 2016 Meet Me Downtown contest. The contest is sponsored by the Downtown Dayton Partnership.

The contest received over 250 entries from around the area. The entries were judged on a number of criteria such as originality, design and how well it fit in with the Downtown Dayton theme.

After receiving the awards, Schutz said, “We are very excited to win this competition! We are proud to be part of downtown Dayton! I think it is great that our city is coming together to create something special downtown!”

Fellow creator Melanie Rabe added, “We appreciate all of your support. It has been a fun and rewarding experience.”

The Spotlight Wall Art Project, designed by artists and sisters Chen Fu and Chen Yi, won the first prize of a competition organized by the New York Center for Architecture (NYCA) and sponsored by Sharpie. The contest asked designers to come up with ideas that can be made with a single Sharpie marker.

The idea of the project is to transform the spotlight wall into an interactive work of art. The artists created an illusion of layered objects and pictures on the wall. The spotlight creates a shadow effect on the wall that makes it look like there are really more layers, when in fact there is only one layer.

This piece was selected as the winner among hundreds of applicants from around the world, including several well-known designers such as Yves Behar and Karim Rashid.”**

Spotlight on The Winners

The idea was that a group of New York City’s most promising young artists would select the best works by their peers in NYC and showcase them at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The contest, conceived by visual artist Julie Lasky and sponsored by The Center for Architecture Foundation (CAF), presented its winners last night at the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts in San Francisco.

Lasky, founder of the creative space Art House Productions, got the idea for the initiative after working with many talented young artists whose work was previously never seen by a wide audience due to lack of exposure and resources. With the help of CAF, Lasky put together an open call for artists under 40 years old living or working in New York City to submit works on a large scale.
