About this project

Sponsored by the Arts Council and Durham University a project is underway exploring light and its impact on human experience. Working with biomedical scientists, architects and healthcare professionals I am exploring the creation of varying experiences of light fall and reflection, changing the atmosphere of spaces to evoke a range of sensations. The aim is to identify qualities and experiences that have the power to uplift mood and positively impact our emotions and well-being.
