This theory based seminar complements studio work in the Masters of Fine Arts in Lighting Design program by asking student to develop their senses and deepen their thinking about light as it occurs naturally, as perceived, and as transformed by architecture and the urban setting. Students will read a series of texts from a variety of disciplines including philosophy, environmental psychology, neurobiology, and design and respond in writing and with group and solo presentations. The architecture, history, and cultural life of New York City will serve as backdrop for the class, and will provide objects of study for presentations and assignments in observation and analysis.
