0605, In Living Color, 2018

This is a 0605.

"label_number": "0605",
"title": "In Living Color, 2018",
"description": "Eight round light fixtures hang from above at different heights. Observe the color temperature of the light changing from a cool, energized blue to a soft, warm yellow. Light is tactile. We describe it as warm or cool, soft or hard. Light alters the qualities of a space and affects our productivity and mood. Bright light and blue wavelengths can promote feelings of alertness in a workplace, while warmer, dimmer lighting is often culturally associated with intimate settings. Designed by Rich Brilliant Willing.",
"instructions": "Occupy the space under spotlight to make the color of the light change.\n\nEach location controls a different set of lights.\n\nDiscover what happens when all three spots are occupied.",
