How we experience light is far more than just a factor of how much illumination is necessary to do a task. Our sense of light, our sight, is a sensorial language that shapes what we see, know, and feel about the world around us. The language of light is so universal and intuitive that we barely notice how it affects us and shapes our experiences every day. But how does this language work? Does it have a syntax and grammar like written language? Or does it have chords and rhythm like we use in music? If light is a language then how can we compose with it to shape desirable experiences?
In this webinar Paul will answer these questions and show that we are at the beginning of a new era lighting where the way we use light everyday will become far more rich and diverse, driving the need for a set of core principles to guide how we design and compose lighting experiences using the language of light.
- A new era of lighting – why do we need a new approach to designing with light?
- The sense of light - Seeing, Knowing and Feeling – Why is light a language and how does it work?
- Natural is best – why are natural experiences of light so important and what does it do for us?
- Re-connecting with nature – an example of how we brought the feeling of outdoors into the office using the language of light in nature.
