SEAHA student Panos Andrikopoulos was keynote speaker at the 1st Greek Lighting Design Symposium, 2 Feb 2017.
LED technology has created many opportunities and challenges for museum lighting. Projects like the Lighting of the Sistine Chapel and the Mona Lisa, realised as collaborations between lighting scientists and professionals have opened new grounds for the museum lighting practice. Panos Andrikopoulos, 2nd year UCL ISH PhD student supervised by Dr Kalliopi Fouseki, was invited by the Hellenic Illumination Committee to give the keynote to the 1st Greek Lighting Design Symposium. Panos has a strong background as a lighting designer and his research focuses on the effect of light on visitor experience in museum environments in collaboration with UCL Museums and Collections and the Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis.
