He also gave great importance to education and believed that man is the only builder of his existence. He was convinced of the importance of art and its ideological and educational functions. In his numerous writings, Moholy-Nagy recorded his aesthetic concepts, both artistic and educational, as shown in Painting, Photography, Film , which contains his aesthetic theory of light.

Light art or luminism  is an applied art form in which light is the main medium of expression. It is an art form in which either a sculpture produces light , or light is used to create a "sculpture" through the manipulation of light, colours, and shadows. These sculptures can be temporary or permanent, and can exist in two distinctive spaces: indoor galleries, such as museum exhibits, or outdoors at events like festivals.
Light art can be an interaction of light within an architectural space. Light artists are those that devote all their creative experimentation to light art, some artists experiment with light and neon signage and use light in their practice.
The first examples of modern light art appeared after the discovery of electric lighting made longterm lighting safe and affordable at the end of the 19th century. Light art however didn't become a dedicated form of art until the late 20th century, due in large part due to pioneering work begun in , as part of an experimental program at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, by Robert Irwin and James Turrell. Light has been used for architectural effect throughout human history.
However, the modern concept of light art emerged with the development of artificial electric incandescent light sources and experimentation by modern artists of the Constructivist and Bauhaus movements. The development of Modernism and the electric light go hand-in-hand; the idea of the modern city with high-rises and electric light epitomizes this development.
All visual art uses light in some form, but in modern photography and motion pictures , use of light is especially important. However, with the invention of electrical artificial light , possibilities expanded and many artists began using light as the main form of expression, rather than solely as a vehicle for other forms of art.
Constructivist Naum Gabo experimented with the transparent materiality light reflects on an object; his Linear Construction No. Art critic Hilarie M.
Sheets explains that "the interplay of dark and light has been a theme running from Greek and Roman sculpture to Renaissance painting to experimental film. But as technology advanced from the glow of the electric light bulb to the computer monitor, artists have been experimenting with actual light as material and subject.
Closely associated art forms are projectors, 3-D map projection, multi-media, video art, and photography where light technology projects images rather than using light as the medium. Large light festivals and events have helped to develop the use of light on large canvases such as architectural facades, building projections, the flood lighting of buildings with colour, and interactive media facades.
These forms of light art have their antecedents in new media-based, video art and photography which are sometimes classified as light art since light and movement are important to the work.
Also included in the light art genre is the so-called light graffiti including projection onto buildings,  arrangement of lighted windows in buildings, and painting with hand-held lights onto film using time exposure. An example of a light art installation was that of artists Mel and Dorothy Tanner , who began adding light to their paintings and sculptures at their studio in Miami, Florida, in The Tanners worked very closely for over 40 years until Mel Tanner died in Their main project was the creation of Lumonics that consists of their light sculptures, live projection, video, electronics and music as a total art installation.
Many modern art museums include light sculptures and installations in their permanent and temporary collections. The Centre for International Light Art in Unna , Germany is currently the world's only museum dedicated exclusively to the collection and presentation of light art.
Many well-known art museums, such as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, often have temporary light art exhibits and installations in their galleries. Light festivals and the smart city LED revolution was driven by outdoor urban light sculpture with low energy LED luminaires. Light artists were able to create new exhibition spaces collectively in the form of light art festivals.
These festivals have continued to grow internationally and help to highlight ecological change. Light festivals and LEDS have redefined light art as an art genre. The International Light Art Award, presented by the Centre for International Light Art Unna and the RWE Foundation, is given to up-and-coming artists who will contribute "to the development of light art in an innovative and creative way"  and has been in existence since The award is meant to encourage artists to explore light art, despite the difficulties the relatively new style faces, including the financial and technical requirements needed for a light art exhibit.
The foundations behind the ILAA also wish to put emphasis on sustainability and new technologies within the medium of light expression. Vivid Light festival grants help support local and international light artists in the pursuit of their medium.
