Illuminating Art
It was Joyce Carol Oates who said, “Art is the highest expression of the human spirit.” Lighting designers, architects, and engineers working on museum spaces face the difficult task of illuminating the highest expression of the human spirit. Identifying the optimal color temperature, or saturated color, intensity, beam spread—all of these are important considerations when creating an experience that will showcase each work in its best light. Beyond the individual pieces, the architecture of the museum itself is often breathtaking—or it could be, in the right light. This issue of SSL Online shares a product designed as the perfect solution for illuminating art and two examples of how lighting in museums can help visitors connect with the pieces and the place on a higher level.
