Colour, Light and Health: Lecture
10 February @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Professor Stephen Westland at the University of Leeds, who leads Future Fashion Factory’s core research theme in data-driven design, will present this talk at Huddersfield Textile Society.
Colour is ubiquitous in the world and is important in design and manufacturing. However, this talk will explore the non-visual effects of colour and light, particularly around the theme of health – including the health risks of being exposed to too much or too little light, the effect of light on sleep and the importance of sleep to our health, and the relationship between physiological and psychological effects of colour.
The talk has implications for the use of colour LED lighting, the use of which is increasing rapidly as a result of technological, sociological and legislative changes.
