Practical Lecture Series: You Too Can Be a Lighting Detective

In an effort to generate interest in their work and research from the general public, the Lighting Detectives started the practical lecture series at Tokyo Design Center in November of 1995. This monthly lecture was not created as a forum for experts or technical theorizing, but as place to exchange ideas about the way lights and lighting exist around us. It was a place to discuss lights and lighting within the confines of culture and urbanism. All 13 lectures were well received, with the last in the series held in December 1996. Below is an outline of all 13 lectures.
