“Art as Light” began as a commission by Dr. Donald Fraser on behalf of Boston University for an installation art work by Hugh O’Donnell to celebrate light. A 144 inch x 168 inch digital window was created for the St. Mary’s Street entrance. The image was created in the computer and printed with an RGB laser onto photographic film and is based on a growing luminous form that symbolizes the genesis of light as a creative force in Art and Industry. Each year since that time students compete to produce proposals for installations that utilize light as an integral part of their expression.
