The quality of the environment makes us increasingly attentive to spaces, volumes, moods and contrasts.
Our eyes seek out a constant variety of shapes, colors and sensations.
As a material, light has the power to emphasize, stimulate, relax, de-materialize, attract, repel, dilate … to reveal an atmosphere.
The way we perceive objects, spaces, textures and colors depends on the lighting used.
80% of our perceptions are visual and 100% of these perceptions depend on light for which lighting itself is a tool. We speak more often of a space devoid of light than a space devoid of darkness.
Depending on a lighting treatment, we can make a space attractive or boring, and make it not only seen but sensed. Light tells a multitude of sensory stories in a personal way … it makes spaces come alive.As a means of communication, lighting validates and serves cultural heritage by emphasizing its remarkable aspects. It creates an identity by contributing to a site’s interpretation and the objects presented.
The visitor cannot touch works of art, thus the objects’ visual impact and the space in which they are viewed compensates for this deprivation, promoting the dialogue between the work of art and its viewer: this relationship nurtures the viewer’s imagination.
In a work of art, we find what we seek and what we want to see … and this is its emotion.
