Project Details


This PhD study investigates the potential of coloured illuminations in healthcare environments. The study is structured around three phenomenological studies, examining the significance of coloured illuminations for the body-space interaction in healthcare environments. More specifically exploring how different hues of illumination might impact:
1. How people sense their body and space (Study 1 – Semi-lab, Den Frie)
2. How people bodily practice and experience space (Study 2 - Fieldwork, Rigshospitalet)
3. How people are bodily present in space (Study 3 - Sensor study, AAU Light Lab)
