We are IGNITE, a multidisciplinary student team from Eindhoven University of Technology. Our vision is to research how light technologies can be facilitated to create social cohesion (e.g. connectedness and solidarity) between individuals within crowds in public areas of large cities.
We aim to realize this vision statement by conducting research (literature, interviews and research through design) on human-light interaction, human interaction, and state-of-the-art technology, in order to create a framework of knowledge on human-light interaction which can be demonstrated in an interactive light installation.
We believe that the future of human work skills is a cross-cultural collaboration by people with different backgrounds and expertise areas. This triggered the establishment of team IGNITE, which embraces and combines the different expertise areas of the students to do multifaceted research.
