Health and light are inextricably linked, especially when speaking about the climate of Earth. From melting polar ice caps, to smoke emitted from massive wildfires, contemporary light conditions drastically affect the Earth’s albedo and thus our environment, pitching it into an abnormal state. Light has also been used, whether as a mystic practice or a modern medical tool, to influence human normality, or the construct of health.

 

My research examines light’s effect on health at multiple scales; including Green Fluorescent protein, sunbeds and lightboxes, the redirection of the sun using mountainside mirrors, and the legal Right to Light inscribed by the United Kingdom’s Ancient Light law.
