Derek will speak about the parallel relationship between his personal artwork and lighting practice. The process of studying light through multiple vantage points offers a deeper understanding of the importance of incorporating subtle nuances of human life in designs. It will offer insight to help you develop new ideas that will translate into real life applications beyond quantitative analysis. This is not a "how to" presentation; it is a philosophical workshop that will help you generate creative opportunities with light.
