Healthy lighting - “Tailored” lighting intervention is a speculative design happening in a future world (Dystopia) in which the condition of experiencing full spectrum light is even worse than nowadays. In this “world”, the lighting environment is getting worse because of the air pollution and lighting pollution, and the circadian rhythm disorder has become a very common phenomenon in society. People have to live in a tailored lighting treatment environment every day to keep their circadian rhythm running well. Through the storytelling of how lighting benefits the inhabitants of my speculative dystopian world, I hope my project will not only explore a new possible method of tailored lighting intervention in healthy lighting, but also raise the public awareness about lighting pollution and health lighting.
