From the HLD Gallery, Define Your Light
Since I was a child, the “play” between light and dark, brightness and shadow, has captured my heart. The inclusion of sunlight is paramount as well as ambient light which creates the surrounding glow. Light often warms a person intellectually, physically, and physiologically. It makes you want to curl up on the sunny spot on the floor or curl up with a book by the table lamp.
One of the guilty pleasures of this difficult time is getting a peek inside spaces that are usually private – the homes of friends, coworkers, even celebrities.
In a recent HLD staff meeting, as we looked at a tile of each other’s faces, we noted the lighting each of us set up for the call, and how we’ve all had to adjust our homes as we spend more time there. As lighting designers, we know that light is one way we can gain some control over our environment.
Out of that conversation grew a challenge, a question for each of our designers: What are you doing to keep yourself inspired during this time of isolation?
Some of us responded with specifics about lighting our workspaces; others focused on career inspiration or waxed philosophical. Get another peek inside, as we share these responses in our HLD Gallery, Define Your Light
