Designing the Nightscape in Saskatoon Canada

ShapingDarkness.png

Light affects our minds and bodies in a myriad of ways. It affects the places we live in. Light helps bring people together, highlight the City’s culture and landmarks and gives the City itself a visual identity, shaping the nightscape.

However, too much light has its own evils. We need to be aware of how it alters our body clocks and how the glow of cities can affect entire ecosystems.

Join us for a presentation of the potential and risks of light. The presentation will highlight a variety of projects taking the well-being of animals and humans into account as well as considering the notion of safety with increased light.

There are roughly 8760 hours in a year and 4700 of them are dark. See the potential and embrace it! 

APRIL 4TH 6:30PM ROXY THEATRE

Luminale Frankfurt - your point of view

We are happy to present to you our light installation “Your Point of View” for the Luminale in Frankfurt, in collaboration with Döllken lighting and Freisteel. The Luminale is a weeklong biennale for light art and urban design held in Frankfurt am Main that runs parallel to worlds largest trade fair on lighting, Light + Building

************************************************************************

About our installation: 
Aesthetic sensitivity, individual attribution of meaning and personal attitude depend decisively on our visual perspective. Should we change our emotional or geographical standpoint, the temporary perception likewise changes and thus our interpretation.

Gestalt psychology confirms that the basic shapes of circle, rectangle and triangle serve as mythologically and metaphysically evocative anchors of interpretation, allowing us to grasp and structure the complexity of our environment. The light installation developed by Studio De Schutter, in partnership with Döllken Lighting, is based on this concept and toys simultaneously with the complexity and simplicity of our perception and the multi-facetted reality that surrounds us. It sees itself as a trigger for a change of perspective and calls for the tracing and disintegration of our cognitive dissonances.

The grouping of monochromatic lines of light invite us to the Taunus and Gallusanlage to take part in an explorative tour or our own perception. It is for us to advance beyond our first impressions and opinions towards the true essence and self-understanding of a thing, to change our standpoints and perspectives - for things can be understood in many different ways.

What is YOUR POINT OF VIEW?

TIDE Conference 2018

Sabine De Schutter will be speaking at TIDE in Amsterdam. In her talk "When lighting design meets design thinking" she will explain, how lighting designers are architects of atmosphere and the visual experience. In this role, how does one put people first when designing for the built environment? In her talk Sabine De Schutter will illustrate with examples, how her studio has been working to integrate the users' needs and how design thinking forms a crucial part of the working process.
