Lume, light-painting or light-graffiti is a unique way to paint in the dark, it's not something you can only see in photos - like the technique of photographing light with a slow shutter speed - it's something that can be appreciated live and that audiences can interact with.
Essentially the technique makes use of a phosphorescent surface that reacts to higher light frequencies and glows for about one and a half minutes. Using different types of lights, for example lasers and different LED arrays, some amazing effects can be achieved.
The materials used are non-toxic and non-radioactive, so it's perfectly safe.
The only possible danger is when using a laser - like any laser it should never be shone directly into anyone's eye or it may cause permanent damage.
