Praise

The Practice of Light is an amazing tour de force. Exceptionally well researched, brilliantly written and the result of the dream of a very talented individual. Cubitt dreamed he held a book such as this in his hand and dearly wanted to read it. No such book existed in reality, so he set about the monumental task of writing it himself. I say monumental because as you will appreciate as you read the book the level of detailed research and scholarship is vast; from the genesis of ‘Let there be light’ through to the images we see on giant LED screens in our contemporary cities… Cubitt introduces, explains, and then explores highly complex theories in such a way that is easy to understand and without getting a stress headache. Highly readable… (L)ight will never appear the same again after digesting Cubitt’s smorgasbord of tantalising morsels from history, science, art, philosophy, and technology.—Leonardo
