On Nov. 3, at Parsons the New School for Design in New York City, Emrah Baki Ulas, lighting team leader in the London office of global engineering firm Steensen Varming will give a talk titled, “Questioning Light.” Ulas will examine the myriad complexities and unknowns of light and ask such questions as, “What if a piece of glass could slow the passage of light so much that you could see into the past? Could artificial moons that reflect sunlight illuminate the nightscape? How would the built environment be different if we designed to darkness requirements?” The lecture is followed by a reception, which will showcase a student-designed installation by the Parsons Light-Space Art class. The lecture is hosted by Glenn Shrum, Assistant Professor and Director of Lighting Design at the School of Constructed Environment at Parsons the New School for Design.
