HOW TO BE IN THE MOMENT THROUGH LIGHT | Thursday, 12th of November at 14.40 GMT

Who are we? 🙂

Deniz Ural is a designer, researcher, and storyteller, fascinated by the power of presence and senses in healing people’s lives. She now works as a researcher and designer at Humanistic. Katia Kolovea is a lighting enthusiast, designer, communication strategist, and the founder of Archifos. She loves creating and collaborating with brilliant minds. With their mutual passion to bring people together, they will share their journey of living in the moment through light.

What is our LuxLive digital festival talk about?

Living in the moment is the most powerful thing that we can do in a world filled with anxiety and uncertainty, especially during a world health crisis like a pandemic. It has become more important than ever to teach mindfulness as a way of experiencing, where people’s sensory awareness is maximized to absorb the full effects of a moment. Light has the power to expand our sense of presence by bringing our attention to the moment as it holds a powerful place in our lives, evoking emotions, transforming spaces, providing a sense of sight and safety, and overall making us see our surrounding environment. Light can be natural or artificial and both can be manipulated in many different forms and combinations to achieve the intended result.

In this presentation, Deniz and Katia will take you through a virtual, sensory, and interactive experience, introducing the concept of presence through light and defining immersive experiences. In the end, the presenters will share three practical tools on how to practice presence in our everyday lives and invite all the participants to join them in the search of magic in everyday life.

    Hello Katia,

    I would very much like to join your session today. Is there anything more I should do or this message is enough?

      Hi Spiros,
      Thank you very much for reaching out,
      The event is free but it does require registration that you can find in the first paragraph of this post. The event was recorded so you can still join and attend all the sessions.

      Have a great day 🙂
