Who remembers David Letterman’s popular Top Ten lists? If you do, you’re probably old. That’s just one of the things you will learn in this light-hearted, but thought-provoking presentation. In The Ten Most Surprising Things Which Impact Lighting (or, Should You Tell Your Lighting Designer?) we will address why items like carpet color and wall texture are important considerations for lighting design. If the three rules of real estate are location, location, location, then the three rules of lighting design are coordination, coordination, coordination. Packed with illustrations, this presentation makes the case for keeping the lighting designer informed of nearly every design decision.
