Chase the Dark will feature a series of guerilla lighting installations demonstrating the power of light in urban communities. Each host city will invite participants to shape an urban environment with light, creating miniature lit scenarios over the course of 1-2 hours. These displays will be installed for just a matter of moments - the images of each light project will be captured permanently on camera and shared on Twitter using the hashtag #IALDchasedark all evening long.
