Speaking about the seminar Mr Hitesh Kumar, Founder & CEO of Artillume said “Creative thinkers always desire to give wings to their ideas however either fear of the unfamiliar or the lack of opportunities keeps one from it. We believe that the Artillume initiative is going to be a big enabler of such creators through encouraging and exhibiting public display of new media light art in open spaces.”
“Artillume has shown our students a new way to blend art with light. It talks about the new magical experience it creates. I’m sure that a lot of our students would want to tinker with this concept to understand this new medium better”, said Mr SM Kulkarni, Dean of Academics & Visual Arts, WUD.
