In the intersection of technology and design lies the art of artificial window creation, a solution for spaces craving natural light. This presentation delves into the complexities of simulating authentic windows. We’ll explore human depth perception, light distribution, and the challenge of replicating the ever-changing hues of the sky, including blue light seen from the sky. By understanding color perception and visual cues, we aim to perfect the experience of artificial windows and skylights. Join us in this enlightening journey, redefining the boundaries of interior illumination.
