The Light of the Future
Das Licht der Zukunft
There is no doubt that light is of outmost importance for our wellbeing, health and security. If there were no light, we would not be able to survive. In the Western world, where societies are active 24 hours a day, there is need and demand for more and more sophisticated sources of light which can be used at any place and time. As a result, all around the world, scientists are unremittingly performing research in light laboratories in order to find out more about natural and artificial light. In numerous studies, they develop techniques that help lead the light into spaces which hardly ever see direct sunlight, as for instance certain areas in hospitals or underground stations. By means of huge mirrors, the sunlight can even be cast into entire villages which otherwise would remain in the shadow all day.
Another point is raised regarding the importance of light for urban and traffic safety. New solutions in lighting will help avoid accidents at dangerous crossroads and in car tunnels. In this documentary we approach a topic which is more current than ever: we discuss sustainable development in the field of light studies, search for intelligent solutions in architectural design and consider the pros and cons of newly developed lighting systems. Join us and enter a fascinating world of light!
