GUEST ARTIST AND VISUAL EXPLORER DAVID TRUBRIDGE shines a light on some of his work

Editor's note: Longtime Elsewhere subscriber David Trubridge is well-known in New Zealand for his range of lights and designs.

But over recent years he and his company have produced a wide range of installations and commissions both here and overseas.

He shows us here some of his recent work and also a short film about his ethos and ideas.

The header image shows a lighting installation at the Culver City Mall. 

For further information on Trubridge and his work, see his website here.

Here are some examples of Trubridge's quite remarkable work.
