Description:
In this course, students will explore fundamental design components involving spatial composition, color, form, contrast, pattern, material, and texture in conjunction with electric lighting and interior space. This study begins with two-dimensional hand drawing and proceeds through three-dimensional model studies to full-scale environmental installations and digital simulations. In the context of this initial investigation of electric light as a design medium, students discover various means of representation, including photography, hand and computer rendering, and computational analysis.
