dc.description.abstract Light is more than just a functional tool we experience everyday. Rather light becomes poetic in the nature that it is able to create a language of its own. It guides experience, defines space, has the ability to alter perceptions. in combination with the manifest qualities of light, its aesthetic value includes: color, mood, texture, awareness, and meaning. The patterns of light affect the sensory encounter with architecture as well as the conceptual and symbolic. This investigation of light will search to reveal the qualities of natural light. Natural light is essential to how we view architecture and the world it creates. the rhythms and patterns of light are both consistent and constantly changing. This dialectic relationship coupled with man-made interventions begins to describe how the experience of a particular place is simultaneously controllable and uncontrollable. This museum will attempt to enhance the characteristics of natural light while generating a poetic experience. Light is the subject to be studied and the observer will be able to engage and embrace this subject. The investigation of how light affects our experience of a space will use architecture to create the space and the human can manipulate elemental architecture. Through the use of supplemental and temporary exhibits, the user will see how light moves through and around various objects. A museum of experimental light is a building with multiple galleries in which the primary subject, light, communicates mood and meaning. en_US
