About the artist
Philip Ross operates on the premise that light inspires people to take action. He strives to create environments with light that support values such as creativity or harmony among people and between humans and nature. In his studio, Studio Philip Ross, he combines insights and techniques from art, design, and science. This results in new amalgamations, as seen in the light artwork a|rplay. “I draw a lot of inspiration from the urge to discover and learn: How can light create something between people, and how can you shape technology into something simultaneously new and familiar?” Philip Ross is trained as an industrial designer at TU Delft and as a researcher at TU Eindhoven. He is also involved with the GLOW Academy, where he serves as a mentor for students participating in GLOW.
