Playing with the Dark

Metropolis Magazine wrote a piece on Linnaea Tillett‘s designs. They are pretty spectacular and we here at AvLt admire her work. Check out a few pictures:

In the article, Linnaea talks about using darkness in her designs. “seeing more is often a matter of less light,” she says, and “too much light hinders perception.” We run into this while designing museum exhibits, where displaying just the right amount of light to highlight certain areas is crucial. When we design, we design the dark as much as we design the light.

What experiences have you had when you’ve played with the dark in your designs?
