About the Author: Richard Cadena

Johannes Itten, the Bauhaus art professor, was deeply interested in the use of color in art In his book, The Art of Color, he said, The artists in stained glass used color to create a supramundane, mystical atmosphere which would transport the meditations of the worshipper to a spiritual plane The modern day lighting designer uses artificial light and color in much the same way to transport the meditations of the concert goer to another plane Understanding how to bridge the gap between lighting technology and art to transcend the mundane is my all consuming passion If my background in electrical engineering taught me anything, it s that I don t want to waste anytime than is absolutely necessary reading tech notes and user manuals For that reason I try to get in touch with my inner clown and let him entertain you while you are unwittingly learning about all things lighting What I learned from working at High End Systems and Martin Professional is that you can t simultaneously be complacent and successful I ve also learned that you learnby doing, so for those reasons I like to be immersed in lighting writing, designing, writing some , reading, programming, teaching, running a console, going to trade shows, listening, reading , and did I say writing I could go on about the stuff I ve done but I minterested in creating a dialogue, an exchange of ideas.
