Lighting Design, New York University, he/him
Christopher Wong is a designer who manipulates light to create experiences and to imagine a world. He believes lighting can transport an audience, expand and contract space like architecture can, and evoke the passage of time or hold us in the stillness of a moment. He loves working in theater and in live events. Beginning with a childhood affinity for visiting lighthouses and for light coming out of a cathode ray projector, Christopher finds inspiration from peculiar light sources. Finding ways to drive a story through practical lighting is one of his favorites, from cliplights and fluorescent tubes to pinspots and beam projectors. In his free time, Wong goes to museums and loves gazing out the windows of a moving train car.
