About the Natural Lighting Emulator Series:
The Natural Lighting Emulator series is based on a specific natural lighting situation: sunlight as seen from beneath a tree canopy. Within the built environment, the opportunity to experience this “natural lighting situation” is diminishing. The cautionary NLE light works provide a thrilling surrogate for this natural phenomenon – they function as a playful solution to life in the built environment, disconnected from the natural world.
