Vinny Jones (1968, Australia) is a scenographer who uses light as her primary material to shape the experience of space. Her practice is a hybrid one that brings together work as a researcher, a light designer, and maker of immersive sensory installations.
Her current practise of Sensory Scenography evolved from research exploring light as a sensory medium that is experienced by the body as well as seen with the eyes. Rather than using light to describe or illustrate a situation, she seeks to create the experience of that situation. Her work bases itself on the recognition that it is through the whole sensing body that we perceive, experience and are connected to the world, and aims to create space for attention and reconnecting to the profound, embodied understanding employed in sensory perception.
