HoryMa is Igor and Irina working together to create artwork using a technique they call svetografikoy. This process is a for of light painting, using lights to create or highlight imagery in a photograph.
How did I miss that Pablo Picasso did light drawings? LIFE Magazine has a wonderful collection of photos showing Picasso creating light drawings. I apologize if you have already seen this, but I didn’t realize that Picasso was an early light drawing artist. From my earliest years of drawing, I have always been in awe of Picasso’s work. It is exciting to see work by him that is so new to me and I am astounded at how ahead of his time these are.

HeHe uses light graffiti to put green clouds on the emissions from local factories. This was designed to get the public thinking about the environment on a more local level. A full explanation is here: http://hehe.org.free.fr/hehe/texte/nv/index.html
Nuage Vert is ambiguous, as it doesn’t offer a simple moralistic message, but rather tries to confront the city dweller with an evocative and aesthetic spectacle, which is open to interpretation and challenges ordinary perception. Turning a factory emission cloud green, inevitably, leads to questions being asked.
