The Story of Light

m ss ng p eces

'While conceiving of ways to introduce GE's new led light bulb, it was necessary to understand how the LED bulb came to be and where it stands in the history of light. The story of light is the incredible story of civilization itself. We have used light for survival, to learn by, to entertain and express ourselves, mold experiences, and illuminate our imaginations. Inspired by such a singular story we set out to create a handmade storybook fantasy illustrating milestones in the history of light. Each chapter invites us through the annals of history, leading to present day where a new set of possibilities are yet to be realized in the light of tomorrow. Knowing that we were developing creative specifically for the imaginative TED audience allowed us to think big and inspire the best from the extraordinary team of artists it took to bring this story of light to life.'

m ss ng p eces create an interesting way to show this story, and its worth looking at the making of video as well.
