One day, an idle developer had an idea: to make a program that would let users draw with light. It would be like light-painting, but with instantaneous results! Ingenious!
That is how Light Paint Live: Instant was born. It had two controls, and the developer deemed it finished.
The story goes on, though, and an Android app was created. It was soon discovered by Joerg Miedza, a very prominent member of the light-painting community. The app was very limited, but Miedza saw it as the next step in the evolution of light-painting. He wanted to know if it could be improved, so he emailed the developer.
Ever since then, Josh Beckwith and Joerge Miedza have been exchanging ideas and improving LPL. Miedza was overflowing with enthusiasm and ideas. He was the driving force behind the LPL project. Without him, the program would still have only two controls!
Joerg Miedza: ArtistMiedza has been creating movies and photos using special techniques since the late 90’s. He is the co-founder of the german light-art project LAPP-PRO. In this project, the LAPP-Team developed a unique brand of light painting: LightArt Performance Photography, or LAPP for short. The skills Miedza acquired working with motion pictures allowed him to contribute significantly to the performance and artistic aspect of LAPP photography.
