Terra Incognita

Light at Night

How much darkness do we need in order to see?

To what extent is a current night space artificially constructed? What are cognitive and social patterns that mediate the perception of the night?

 

My research is based on my strong interest in the ‘constructed environment’ in relation to ‘how we see the world’. The thesis makes reference to the night in accordance with the dimensions of place, media and identity. I believe if I want to see and understand the world I live in, I need to consider my surroundings as a growing, artificially constructed, mediated space, not only in the virtual form of the Internet but also in physical spaces.
