ArchLIGHT Summit, the lighting trade event and educational platform for the architectural, specification, and design communities, will feature a special art installation. AWARE is an experiential exhibit composed of mixed materials from lighting manufacturers that together serve as a creative advocate for sustainability. The installation is the brainchild of the team at Your Lighting Brand and The Lighting Exchange led by Co-Founder & Principal Jonathan Ayala.
In addition to the installation, Ayala and his team have assembled a group of sustainability experts who have discussed the subject matter in-depth. While viewing the installation, attendees can put on headphones to engage with these perspectives for enlightening insights. After ArchLIGHT Summit, his team will be releasing a video with compiled interviews including behind-the-scenes footage of the artistic creation.
When asked about the installation, Ayala commented, “AWARENESS of any subject matter is the foundation that provokes and enables change. It’s the heartbeat of momentum and leads to extraordinary outcomes when communities unite to become more aware of any topic simultaneously. Through the AWARE experiential art installation, our goal is to inspire you and remind you, via this artistic medium, of the importance of sustainable efforts and that, as a community, our advocation for sustainability awareness is the first step.”
The installation is created by The Lighting Exchange and Your Lighting Brand and is supported by Cooper Lighting Solutions, Lightly, Lindsley Lighting, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Plaskolite, Prentalux, Sladen Feinstein, Targetti and Zinkon Creative Studio.

In addition to the AWARE art installation, ArchLIGHT Summit attendees will have access to 25+ seminars, discussions, and events offering timely and accredited sessions for lighting solutions, trends, and standards, but also addressing agency dynamics, diversity and inclusion, workplace evolution, and allyship. Access to the ArchLIGHT Summit show floor and all hospitality events is complimentary, and a $50 flat fee will allow attendees access to all education sessions.
ArchLIGHT Summit takes place September 19-20, and will welcome attendees to review new technologies, network, and attend a wide range of CEUs from lighting and design/build thought leaders.
