I have this thing with light.
I like it.
Light makes me feel happy.
One day while I was surfing the internet, I happened upon a website that quickly caught my attention. A man was sitting in a dark room staring at a wall sized picture that was illuminated from behind it.
Of course, I was mesmerized by the the work of Jirko Bannas and Oliver Seltmann who describe their Lightwalls, Roof Top Lights and Polaboys in this way:
“These are images which not only open up rooms, but also hearts and minds; images which are pure and true and free from artificial effects or filters. They express strength, peace and reassurance and stand for freedom, open spaces and passion. They invite you to explore and discover their rich detail, to lose yourself in them. They are images which make you feel you’re in a special place and let you forget about your problems. Images with the power to move you.”
Lightwalls By Lightboys
I immediately envisioned every room of my home with a lit wall. Not a wall lit with lights, but a wall with a BIG picture that was illuminated just like a lighted wall by Lightboys.
So this room has my mother written all over it. I bet it is beautiful all lit up.
Maybe I would choose a foggy city scape.
I’m feeling a little lightheaded.
Get it? Light. Headed.
I thought it was funny!
Me, Jane. Where is scantily clad Tarzan to save me from the wild creatures in the bright green jungle?
I’m fly-y-y-y-y-ying like Superman through the puffy sunshine filled clouds!

Come sit with me and we can dangle our legs off the pier while we talk about the day.
This is definitely not Turtle’s 55 gallon tank and the fish look like they could gobble me up!
Ahhhhhhh…Can you hear the waves splashing? I can.

Roof Top Lights By Lightboys
Another lovely wall that can be lit is the ceiling which Lightboys has illuminated with the Roof Top Lights. It definitely gives a whole new meaning to laying in bed and staring at the ceiling.
Polaboy By Lightboys
Do you like Polaroid pictures? Well, that is the idea behind the Polaboy by Lightboys. You can also have one made from your own photograph. All you do is:
- Send in an original Polaroid
- A professional high-end scan will be produced, including image processing
- The image will be exposed on a special Polaboy slide film
- The POLABOY will be assembled and shipped anywhere in the world
Are you wondering which one was my favorite Lightwall?
Snow! Oh my! I could have snow EVERY day!
Gorgeous. A snow lit wall. That is definitely perfection.
