The power of concept, colour, time and natural light
Presentation date. 27. October
Presentation time: 11:05
In this presentation, Iben Winther Orten will focus specifically on museum-related lighting design issues and choices. She will explain her theories about storytelling in museums to enable people to make sense of their surroundings, about using colour in museum lighting, and how powerful the order in which we see colours can be. Furthermore, Iben will emphasise how important time is for future lighting design and what possibilities there are on the horizon. Last, but not least, the power of natural light will be discussed and why it is so complex to work with natural light.
The presentation is intended to induce debate related to a number of key issues on four themes, selected based on questions that clients currently care most about.
