In this episode of RM-3 (Raw Materials 3 Ways), host Dan Maginn investigates how light accentuates architecture, sculpts our experiences, and ultimately shapes our behavior.
Though intangible and mercurial, light has a profound impact how we perceive and navigate space. In this episode of RM-3, our host Dan Maginn speaks to architect Joan Soranno, whose manipulation of light in sacred spaces like chapels and mausoleums creates transcendent experiences; architect Miguel Ángel Aragonés, whose LED-colored homes in Mexico City take on shifting moods throughout the day; and Charles Blanc and Tristan Surtees of art practice Sans façon, whose treatment of light in public places plays with people’s perception of commonplace events in a playful—yet moving—way.
