“More light,” Goethe’s dying words.
While the administration of more light did little to deflect the ultimate consequences of Goethe’s deteriorating health, his last words do express an intuitive understanding of the bond between light and health that, while unknown to early 19th century science, 21st century science is increasingly in a position to confirm. Mr. Norris’ lecture will explore the expanding evidence of the connection between light and health and will then speculate on how this intertwining will impact light’s dominant means of delivery — architecture.
