Gard Gitlestad

I work with light, video and photography in a variety of different contexts – my education is in architectural lighting design, but I also have a background in documentary, industrial and architectural photography, and I am currently experimenting with ways to combine these media. Whenever I am not doing so in the field or in the studio, I work as a lighting designer and technician, with stage lighting for music and dance, light art in public areas and architecture. In these contexts, I work with custom electronics design and embedded systems, leveraging open source technologies to create projects with maximum impact even in very budget constrained situations.
