Join Three Scientologists Whose Work Is a Celebration of Light

In honor of International Day of Light, the Scientology Network features the impact of light on the work of artists featured in three episodes of the original series “Meet a Scientologist.”

UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, sets aside May 16 as International Day of Light to highlight the role of light in science, culture, art, education and sustainable development. 

In honor of the day, the Scientology Network spotlights three episodes of the original series Meet a Scientologist, featuring the work of men and women for whom light is the inspiration and medium of their art.

  • János Héder, enthralled by the constellations and nebulae in the enormity of black space, sought to recreate the wonder he experienced through the creation of chandeliers that transform the spaces they illuminate. He and his wife Judit, fellow designer and joint CEO of Manooi Light Creations, and their team of designers and staff bring beauty and luminance to the world. 
  • Christy Lee Rogers uses the refraction of light through water to create works of photographic brilliance that have been compared to the works of Titian, Rubens and Caravaggio. Her artistic and personal journey and her role in forging a new respect for photography in the world of art is the subject of her episode. 
  • Tom Rigdon transforms light by faithful use of techniques used in creating the magnificent windows of Gothic and Renaissance churches. Stepping in to take over the faltering company for the wife of his best friend who died suddenly, he built the enterprise into a thriving studio, inspired by his belief that light is the most powerful aesthetic there is.
