Light as Material

Collaborative workshop with the Yale Center for Engineering, Innovation, and Design, exploring the material properties of light.

Facilitated by Joe Zinter, Ian Gonsher, Beth Altringer, and Neils Cosman.     •    Spring 2013

Yale CEID      

Using the compact florescent light bulb as our point of departure, Yale, Harvard, Brown, and RISD students explored the light it produces in relation to a palette of materials, prototyping quickly, iteratively building upon the insights of others, and critiquing our work as we shifted from conversation to exploration back to conversation. Students documented the process. This is some of what they saw.
