The workshop aims at providing participants with personal visual experience of natural nightlight as well as with opportunities of evaluating its sufficiency & at developing skills of devising darkness minded lighting design concepts and applying relevant Low Lighting Level technologies in a commensurate with the available nightlight manner.
A further goal of the workshop is to provide access to current lighting technologies and the opportunity to get familiar with three specific technologies:
DYNAMIC LIGHTING CONTROL
PHOSPHORESCENCE AIDED LIGHTING
PROJECTION MAPPING - PROJECTION TECHNIQUES
The workshop is supposed to re-establish the true meaning of Nightlight equally to Daylight, and make lighting experts rethink about the modest night-time version of Natural Lighting and its artificial and possibly harmonized extensions. In this sense, comparative Dark Sky Quality measurements are being carried out and evaluated.
The workshop takes place from the 31st September to the 4th October 2024 in Volos. Participants have to arrive one day earlier during the previous weekend at the very latest. On the last day in the evening a farewell dinner is planned. Therefore return flights have to be booked for the subsequent weekend.
Representatives of the Workshop supporters will give lectures about specific nightscape related topics. Attractive sites have been selected to accommodate experimental nightscape concepts under the guidance of experienced Workshop Heads.
