Joey, Tiffany and I went over to our tunnel in Ferguson Hall to test out some lighting strategies. With simple color gels over the fluorescent lights, we achieved a pretty dramatic change in mood and feel of the space. We experimented with cool colors on one end of the tunnel and warm colors on the other end of the tunnel to see what scheme we liked best. Although we were working with used gels, we all liked the pseudo-random color swatches over the lights, although, we thought the stark angularity of them was potentially distracting.
We ended up liking both color schemes a lot. We're still on the fence, but one strategy that we hadn't considered before was using the warm color scheme with the concept in the third image of our concept renderings (my previous post), and transitioning to the cool color scheme and the more cave-like concept in the first concept rendering.
Please leave comments because we would like a lot of input that can help us make decisions!
