An installation dedicated to the physiological and psychological effect of the light, cured by Massimo Caiazzo IACC Italia and Aura Light Italia, Valentina Marvulli, Roberta D'Amico.
Even today, people think that the light is necessary only "to watch" and for this, they underestimate the quality at the source, without thinking about the consequences of people health and wellness.
Recent studies have highlighted that light has deep effects on the human body: the eye represents the duct through which realizes the stimulating effect of the light and the nervous system reacts to its intensity changes inducing the production of the hormones. This process can be considered as the chlorophyll photosynthesis’ fundamental principles transposition in the animal world. For these missing wavelengths in all the artificial illumination types, cause a sort of "malnutrition" for our organism. Comparing two workplaces, the installation wants to be the demonstration that the artificial light has physiological e psychological effect on us.
The first place reproduces conditions, which we can find in the most of offices, hospitals, schools where the chromatic and bright climate can be wrong and implicates “metameric” problems, which contributes to the dispersion of our life forces with delineated illnesses, with headaches, irritability, tiredness and the increase of other diseases.
The second one is a balanced place, expressed on the basis of visual ergonomic, which creates a comfortable chromatic climate that is continuously iridescent.
