Transforming the Poetic Experience of Space through Light investigates theoretical and practical artistic methods of manipulating senses through which the space is experienced cognitively and emotionally. The focus is on innovative use of experimental lighting that engages perception, emotion, memory, and imagination. Theoretical research focuses on historical and contemporary references that demonstrate transformation of spatial experience by means of manipulating light. Studying theoretical and practical examples leads towards discovering, interpreting, and developing a novel body of knowledge for enhancing the multisensory spatial experience that provides access to transforming the perception of space in the purpose of art.
Practice based research investigates both traditional and progressive principles of spatial design, fabrication, lighting design, audiovisual systems, and algorithmic composition. The interest is in exploiting technological advancements in lighting that can fuse perception of senses and add to the phenomenological experience of the artistic intentions. The premise for this practice is an expansion of the lighting technology apparatus into immersive perceptual hyperspace.
