Light celebrating place, West Texas Road Trip
MetadataShow full item record
The dissertation explores the ability of light to embody and enhance the spirit of place in the Big Bend section of West Texas. A series of surveys and research investigated and then paired elements of light and place that were designed, and installed or simulated, in four experiential case studies. The case studies were evaluated by published authors of light and place and the dissertation committee and deemed mostly successful. Light installations can be embodied and enhance the spirit of place, the installations which were experienced “live” did this most effectively.
