Much has been said about electric light and its effects on the circadian rhythm that impact a person’s well-being and health. Yet, current solutions have not yet reached mass appeal – perhaps, in part, because of the confusion and contradictory information that still exists in the marketplace. Our presentation explores these current challenges, overviews work done to date, discusses light used for psychological benefit versus physiological benefit, and offers some suggestions for consideration when designing with light.
