I have recently stumbled upon Daniel Rybakken's work which is quite amazing! After completing his Masters in Industrial Design, he focused his work on daylight theories by re-creating it in an artificial manner to trigger its natural effect via various accent lighting experiments and installations.
"When you have daylight in a room you get information of something outside. This creates a feeling of an expanded perceived space. A sensation of freedom" but "When daylight is removed, you no longer get this positive sensation. The room feels smaller, you feel enclosed."
Daniel describes lighting as a subconscious emotion in which all elements sets the entire mood of the room. Once these elements are in context with their surrounding harmony is enhanced.
