What transformations in our senses and perceptions are due to the advent 
optical technology, especially by digitalization? "Light InSight" 
exhibition offers new perspectives on the too often overlooked past, 
present and future possibilities of the existence of "light", seeing our 
perception in ways that go beyond art and science. Here, we introduce 
experimental works and projects with unique visions of concept, 
phenomena, and process, in which the viewer can experience the 
transformation of our senses and physical perceptions afforded by the 
continuous expansion of optical and light technology. It will will 
provide an opportunity for the viewer to question anew the significance 
of seeing, vision, and sight through light, and to obtain new insights.
