I’m Vito, passionate and fascinated by light's capacity to shape one’s perception of space, to create atmospheres, images and emotions. It all started when I first had the chance to do the lighting for a stage play where I was amazed at the possibility of changing the audience's perception and feelings only with light.
My interests in using the medium "light" vary from photography and urban design to stage lighting. Each field, but also each culture has its own characteristics in the use of light, which makes it even more intriguing.
I got the chance to learn to create and design with light in different fields during my studies such as Architectural Lighting Design (HAWK in Hildesheim), Architecture (UPB in Medellín) and Theatre Lighting Design (ENSATT in Lyon). In Mexico City I gained practical experience in Architecture Lighting Design. In Lyon at the ENSATT and in Berlin, I worked in small stage productions. My work in different movie productions in the light and camera departments gave me an additional view on how light has the power of creating moods.
I graduated a degree on lighting design for health and wellbeing, which is starting to have a key role in architecture.
In all these studies and experiences, I got to value that in every field the collaboration of different disciplines is essential to achieve a remarkable result.
On this website you can get an impression of what matters to me while working with light. I am always open to possibilities of creating and designing with light, and of building an impact on society through work in urban and stage lighting.
