DWAYNE WAGGONER: LIGHT AND LANGUAGE IN ARCHITECTU RE

XAL

5.10.2016, 7pm

“See the light.” But what do we actually mean when we speak of light and various light moods? This was the question investigated by the Graz pioneer light enterprise XAL in its Vienna showroom. Ever since lighting design has
become established as an autonomous genre, a new language has also evolved for categorizing and systemizing our perception of illuminated environments. Dwayne Waggoner and Dominik Alder approached the theme from various angles to illustrate current developments – from biorhythms to linguistics. Two
fascinating lectures which cast up a great deal of material for discussion!
