Increasing the perception of art with a light

How can exhibits and rooms be displayed with light?

Creating perception hierarchies with light

Light renders art perceivable for visitors. It presents exhibits and rooms, it guides the view of the observer and contributes to the drama of an exhibition by lending a special status to important works in a collection. Brilliant light and good colour rendering are indispensable for viewing details.
