Parsons School of Design, School of Constructed Environments presents
for Ambient Communication"
Ambient communication is a hybrid form of spatial interaction that is simultaneously digital and physical, made possible with light, technology and concepts rooted in human biology. By introducing meaningful digital feeds to our built environments through ambient communication, we can enhance and extend our conscious and subconscious awareness of what is going on around us. This talk introduces ambient communication and the process of how this proprietary technology was incubated by a lighting design studio and spun into a new technology start-up.
Presenter: Tapio Rosenius, Director of Lighting Design Collective (Madrid, Spain) is the CEO of Skandal Technologies, a new technology start-up developing Ambient Communication systems for built environment and the founder of the Lighting Design Collective a thought-leading international lighting design practice with studios in Madrid, Helsinki and London.
Host: Glenn Shrum, Program Director, MFA Lighting Design

The DLFNY is proud to support Phoscope's Recreo De Noche (RDN) pilot project with a $10,000 grant.
Days are short at the tropics, and PhoScope is launching “Recreo de Noche” in Puerto Rico to rapidly deploy solar lighting in community playgrounds for use after sunset. This initiative will serve the immediate recreational and social needs of many Puerto Ricans who are deprived of electrical power and until longer-term utility and infrastructure projects are developed and implemented.
“Recreo de Noche” is a replicable model for the procurement of a set of solar lighting products to community groups who will distribute and install them in collaboration with teams of volunteers. These will assist the process with public discussions and participatory workshops on light and lighting.
PhoScope partnered with Lighting in Action (LIA) and Concepteurs Lumière Sans Frontières (LSF) to implement a pilot project in San Juan with the Corporation del Proyecto ENLACE del Caño Martín Peña (ENLACE) and the local communities in the fall of 2018. The model will then be replicated throughout Puerto Rico.
