Scape #02 / 23
|L. Diedrich; H. Harsema; D. de Bruijn
This special issue explores the magic of darkness, something which seems more elusive than ever nowadays. The illumination of our cities entails a harsh reality: the disastrous damage that all this light does to the world of insects, animals, and the entire ecological system, not to mention the human cycles of day and night, sleep and activity, and illness and well-being. Lighting designers from around the world and dark sky advocates from the United States and New Zealand offer insight into how to better manage and design our surroundings. Besides a photo dossier on stargazing, the issue features innovative ways to approach lighting design, essays, portraits, and more.
