"Form," writes the author, "is developed by means of light and shade; without these every object would appear flat." Originally published in the mid-nineteenth century, this classic approach to three-dimensional drawing was the first book to provide art students with instructions for correctly illustrating perspective outlines of various objects.
As humans ventured into the twentieth century, the industrialized countries were confronted with the scourge of rickets. Although solariums were becoming common in the early 1900s and phototherapy was gaining popularity as a result of the awarding of a Nobel Prize to Finsen in 1903, it wasn't until 1921 when Hess and Unger demonstrated that rickets could be cured by exposure to sunlight that the healthful benefit of sun exposure appreciated. In 1941, Apperly (Cancer Research; 1: 191-195, 1941) noted that the occasional increased risk of skin cancer was associated with a decreased risk of many other more common and serious cancers. The alarming increase in the number of cases of skin cancer, especially melanoma, has caused great concern about the negative role of sunlight in health. The Sixth International Arnold Rikli Symposium on the Biologic Effects of Light was held in Boston, Massachusetts from June 16th - 18th, 2001. The goal of this Symposium was to focus on the very popular practice of tanning either by sunlight or by artificial light sources and the overall impact this practice has on health and disease. The program was organized by members of the Scientific Advisory Committee and my co-chair emeritus, Professor Ernst G. Jung. The Program Committee organized an outstanding state-of-the-art program that was enthusiastically received by the participants.
New lighting best practices, from a design-research collaboration
Evidence-Based Lighting Design explores how light affects human health and well-being, and provides real-world examples and guidelines for designers. Written by internationally recognized and award-winning lighting experts, the book combines design theory and scientific research to establish best practices for lighting design. Contributions by prominent medical and scientific researchers provide real evidence validating the long-held assumption that design impacts the users of the space, and the book expands upon the research to provide an accessible, easy-to-read guide to the theory, concepts, and practice of evidence-based lighting design.
Evidence-based design is a research-based approach designers use to understand how the built environment influences behavior. When applied to lighting, the evidence was made clear when the American Medical Association announced that lighting does indeed affect human well-being. The recent integration of scientific evidence into lighting design has become a top priority for lighting designers, and Evidence-Based Lighting Design is the first comprehensive reference in the field. The book discusses the results of research, and offers advice on incorporating these new guidelines into the design process. Topics include:
The book includes case studies that illustrate the real-life impact of lighting, exploring aspects like artificial environments, clinical environments, and the effects of light on plants and animals. The guidelines that result represent the collaboration of designers and researchers, making Evidence-Based Lighting Design the most complete field resource on the market.
Art is the Queen of all sciences communicating knowledge to all the generations of the world. Leonardo da Vinci Artistic behavior is one of the most valued qualities of the human mind. Although artistic manifestations vary from culture to culture, dedication to artistic tasks is common to all. In other words, artistic behavior is a universal trait of the human species. The current, Western de?nition of art is relatively new. However, a d- ication to artistic endeavors such as the embellishment of tools, body - namentation, or gathering of unusual, arguably aesthetic, objects can be traced back to the origins of humanity. That is, art is ever-present in human history and prehistory. Artandsciencesharealongandenduringrelationship.Thebest-known- ample of the explorationof this relationship is probably the work of Leonardo da Vinci. Somewhere in the 19th century art and science grew apart, but the cross-transfer of concepts between the two domains continued to exist. Currently, albeit the need for specialization, there is a growing interest in the exploration of the connections between art and science. Focusingoncomputerscience, itisinterestingtonoticethatearlypioneers of this discipline such as Ada Byron and Alan Turing showed an interest in using computational devices for art-making purposes. Oddly, in spite of this early interest and the ubiquity of art, it has received relatively little attention fromthe computersciencecommunityingeneral, and, moresurprisingly, from the arti?cial intelligence community."
Bryan Fuller had been in the boys' orphanage for 14 years. The other boys didn't like him; they were jealous because he was bigger, stronger and smarter than all of them. Years earlier the FBI had told him his mother died when he was born. They said that his father had stolen millions in a bank robbery and later died in an FBI shoot-out. He thought there was something fishy about their story but he couldn't figure out what the truth was. Bryan was supposed to start high school in the fall but now an old widow in Arizona had chosen him to be her Foster Child. He thought maybe this would solve all of his problems and give him a fresh start in life. But, when he got there, a greater mystery awaited him. Why wouldn't she let him in the house? Why did she try to feed him dog food? Why did he have to sleep in the barn? Why was there a secret room buried deep under the barn, complete with all facilities and even a computer system? Who had lived there and why had they obviously been gone for years? Why had someone been digging holes all over the barnyard; what were they looking for? Why was there a boat-trailer by the lake but no boat anywhere in sight? In Bryan's quest to solve these mysteries he would use his intelligence and strength to make friends, home-school himself, overcome a group of bullies, invent something that helped people worldwide, learn to fly an airplane and become the richest teenager in America. And, just when he thought girls would never like him, he would win the heart of the prettiest girl in the state. Everyone knew there was something amazing and special about Bryan. But, after seeing what Bryan had accomplished in just four years, they were all going to be even more amazed to find out what his next adventure would be. Bryan was going to need a Passport!
