Light, art and biophilia

 

Like art, light inspires. From sunsets to starlight, fireworks to fireflies, humans often perceive light as poetic and inspiring. But light does much more than just stir imagination; how we perceive light can affect everything from our emotions to our alertness and biological timing. Art shares a similarly profound power. Neuroscientists have determined that appreciating nature-inspired art, for example, elevates our wellbeing.

 

Both light and art are potent tools to affect peoples’ psychosomatic states. We can manipulate light to evoke sensations that engage body, mind, imagination and emotion. This power is enormously transformative, touching on essential strands of the human experience; feelings, perceptions, moods and thoughts. If used properly, we can use light, art and biophilia to heal and restore, a theory backed by scientific research.

 

Watch this webinar to learn about the use of light as a creative tool, and its potential to evoke profound responses in combination with art and biophilia (nature-inspired design). You will discover innovative methodologies in modulating lighting based on personal needs, and the application of these methodologies to enhance individuals’ wellbeing.
