There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.
People's conscious and subconscious mind can be manipulated and conditioned by what they see. Seeing is the response of the human perceptual system to light's interaction with surfaces and spaces. Therefore at its very basis, the lighting designer has the tools and the opportunity to recondition the mind, by determining how light interacts with the surrounds and influences the state of the perceptual system.
This studio explores ideas on designing visual environments that influence human moods and emotions, through a deep study of perceptual psychology, visual attributes and modes of appearance. The studio has a strong focus on hands-on experimentation with light, materials and volumes. The participants produce solutions that challenge the traditional use of lighting in the built environment with the objective to open up new possibilities.
