Abstract [en]

“If light is scarce then light is scarce; we will immerse ourselves in the darkness and there discover its own particular beauty.”

Junichirō Tanizaki, Writer, ‘In Praises of Shadows’

This thesis is an exploration of how darkness could provide an immersive com- forting experience, what it takes to define the relationship between human and comfortable darkness, and finally to take this exploration into lighting design field. The study investigates through questionaires, studies of literature review and interprets aspects of darkness, emotional comfort and spatial decisions to conclude guidelines for the installation – in ● hiatus. The outcome is an abstract attempt to translate ‘darkness’ to predict and dispose a sense comfort in a contemplative space through a partial sculptural and partial architectural lighting installation, which intends to provide a multi-sensory experience both personal and collective.
