Explore the 'Day of Light' archive of fan submissions surrounding the Grammy Nominated album 'Lux'

10/01/2014
On 17th November 2012, Brian Eno and Warp broadcast 'Lux' four times and invited fans to submit photos around the theme 'Play of Light'. Following a Grammy nomination for the album, explore the archive of images that make up the 'Day of Light' project.

"Day of Light' was conceived to mark the release of my new album LUX. We asked people to send in photos with the theme 'Play of Light' - which was one of the titles I considered for the album - to be streamed throughout the day, accompanying the broadcast of the album. The idea was to make a collaborative, generative work...to see what happened if you just made a space for it to happen in." - Brian Eno
