The purpose of ChromaTherapyLight.com
Bridging lighting research and lighting design. What do color, circadian systems, astronomy, and SAD have to do with lighting and how does current research affect our lighting design decisions? This education website is where I teach lighting design basics, share what I learn, and explore current research. Educating ourselves about the art and science of illumination is important for lighting designers in this fast-changing industry.
Each topic page has footnotes, citing scientific articles from many resources including: The Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA), and the Illuminating Engineering Society's (IES) Recommended Practice (RP) series of publications.
Lifelong learning is another name for professional development and this website is for design professionals, builders, students; anyone interested in learning more about the art and science of illumination. No advertising – only complex information presented simply, current information and data to support good lighting decisions. This website is dynamic, changing over time as lighting topics are introduced and expanded. You will find 75 lighting fixture and design boards on my Pinterest.
