The space is in part a tribute to two of The Netherlands’ great artists, Piet Mondrian and Gerrit Rietveld. In their paintings and architecture/ furniture, both these masters used rectangles of color. The Thinc presentation, therefore, has rectangular screens set into an illuminated and changing background. This is an immersive experience since visitors are within a box with screens on all four walls and the ceiling. The lighting effects in the surrounding area will change and at the same time the screens will show different high definition images.
The entire video process will last for just over eight minutes, after which visitors will be able to move across the corridor to the ‘explore light’ space. This moves the visitor from an experience to something more active.
Visitors start with white light, breaking it down with a prism and recombining it. They can then learn more about the human eye, followed by an explanation of the meaning of color temperature and color rendering. They will be able to handle and explore the elements that go into LEDs, and they will also be able to explore different lighting effects.
