Nindya Nareswari is a lighting designer and artist from Indonesia who based in Berlin, Germany.
She went to study bachelor's in product design at the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB), Indonesia in 2007 where she graduated with Cum Laude. Before finishing her degree, she had an internship at Sakai Design Associate in Japan and at Ingo Maurer in Germany in 2010. Her Bamboo Lamp was nominated for the Indonesian Good Design Selection 2010 for the lighting design category. She continued her studies for a master degree in Architectural Lighting Design at Hochschule Wismar, Germany and finished her degree in 2014.
Her artistic practice mainly explores human perception and ephemerality. In her body of work, light is depicted as a universal yet very personal medium to reevaluate our way of seeing and shaping emotions. Ranges from light objects and sculptures, light photography, to set and stage lighting design, and light art installations, she doesn’t limit her exploration with light. Her works have been exhibited internationally including at Berlin Fashion Week, Memphis Gardens in Melbourne, and National Gallery of Indonesia. Material, experience, and space have always been at the core of her artistic practice. Her works are heavily based on experimentation with light as an intangible material, in combination with tangible materials to create patterns, movement, and colour. This experimentation is done to challenge our visual perception and arouse narratives about changes in the viewer while experiencing the artwork.
She is available for freelance and collaboration projects.
