Product Designer (1979- )

Obscura Views (Design Museum Atrium)

12 May – 17 June 2007

London-based designer ED SWAN creates lighting effects that alter spatial perceptions. Inspired by an interest in camera obscuras, ancient image-making devices, Swan utilises these optical principals with an innovative use of materials to produce illusionary projections.

Who has presented his artwork!!

When and where!!

Swan’s work has been presented by Ron Arad and more recently OKAY Studio as part of exhibitions in London, Milan, Cologne, and Berlin. In 2005 his work gained interest from E&Y, Japan and consequently was installed in Tom Dixon’s first architectural adventure, the Tokyo Hipster’s Club. He invents different types of lights.
