Miho Konishi, ALG’s Lighting Director, appeared as a moderator in the webinar “The author of ‘Haruka no Hikari’ reads out ‘The future lighting’” organized by Japan International Association of Lighting Designers on May 14th.
In this webinar, we welcomed Mr. Koichi Yajima, the scriptwriter of “Haruka no Hikari” (broadcasted on NHK E-TV), an original TV drama based on how a famous lighting fixture brings “light” into the lives of characters.
We talked about “the form of happiness” that is being reexamined in the age of the new normal, and what “light” is an important element of that form of happiness, using episodes from the drama.
