Limelight is a digital media company offering turnkey solutions for light art installations at any scale, all around the world.
In the late 90s, Limelight Co-Founder Viktor Vicsek produced some of the first immersive light art installations. Viktor partnered with István Dávid in the early 2000s and the two founded Limelight. Since then, Limelight has grown into an internationally awarded artist collective, pioneering the projection mapping scene around the world.
Accessible, inclusive, original; three of the guiding principles to Limelight’s work. Limelight’s roots are in creating large public artworks, free and accessible to all. Even though the work has expanded to new mediums and platforms over the years, Limelight still prioritizes projects in partnership with light festivals and municipalities that are available for everyone to enjoy in public spaces.
Inclusivity requires representation. Through the Masterclass, Limelight is helping train the next generation of artists so that more voices can be heard through this artist's medium. In addition to a diverse International group, we strive to have more gender diversity in each class. Celebrating individuality encourages originality. We aren’t happy just pioneering the mapping industry, we want to constantly reinvent it.
Some of our team members were the earliest pioneers of the light art industry. Since then, Limelight has been pushing the boundaries of what is possible and setting trends in artistic style.
