Light, photosensitivity, lighting design


This study examines the amount of light and the quality of the lighting solution, the preservation of works of art, and the perception of museum environments. Illumination of works of art should not be considered as merely meeting the lighting standards of a museum. At the same time, work lighting and ambient lighting must be balanced as a whole. Illumination and brightness levels, screen, and artifact positions must be selected according to precise calculations. For this reason, lighting comfort that does not tire the eyes should be provided for the display and comfortable perception of the works. When considering the annual light exposure period of a work of art, irreversible damage should be considered. For this reason, the level of sensitivity to light is very important when designing lighting in areas where works of art are exhibited. Lighting design depends on the goals and objectives of a project. For all these reasons, light concept selection criteria should be calculated in detail in light-sensitive areas such as museums.
