A SOCIAL HISTORY OF LIGHT AND LIGHTING
David DiLaura, Acuity Brands Lighting, Boulder, CO USA

Lighting has helped determine when and how we work and play. It has expanded our chance at education, brought us knowledge and helped us to harness technology. Lighting has been woven into the very fabric of civilization's infrastructure and become an industry unto itself. Lighting has given us a chance to be dangerous, affecting the environment and even our own health. This seminar will explore these and other ways in which lighting was and still is a social issue. Attendees will learn the principal aspects of lighting's social history and see how their professional work shapes and determines, in part, society's future.
