It is incredible how much lighting influences our perception of shapes, materials and spaces. At the same time very few people are aware about this. I wasn't, at least before I started this project. Then I dived into the light studies from physical and, of course, perceptual perspective, and now every day I'm discovering new details about amusing abilities of our visual system to process all the information and extract necessary cues to understand what is in front of us. Here you can see a short video made for my faculty PhD day, in which I briefly introduce my project.
