Light as a meaningful medium

May 14, 2009 at 16:11 Leave a comment

Light can be an effective feedback and therefore express behaviours trough:

  • SPEED OF CHANGES (RATE): frequency, duration, cycles, syncronicity, sequence of a pattern
  • INTENSITY/BRIGHTNESS: fading, pulsing, blinking
  • SHAPE: using many LEDs, low definition screen
  • CULTURAL REFERENCES: red/stop, green/go….

A recogniseble pattern tells us something: the message is intentional and, in relation with the pace/colour, this is the “state” of the content. If there is no pattern maybe there is no content or something is wrong.
