Ler, Recomenda-se…
This section is dedicated to a collection of books, articles and poems that should be part of the Lighting Designer cultural database. These books, articles and poems do not have necessarily to be focussed in light & lighting and shadow. These readings should be a process to awaken feelings, thoughts and reflections through a continuous process of learning and deepening, so important for professionals that are exposed to social and artistic actions.
PRISM|A|magazine interviewees will be invited to share their reading suggestions that will be also shown in the magazine. Our aim is to keep a diverse bibliography that could instigate interest, since we stay alert for new fields of thinking. Below I am showing my proposals that are already included in the Introduction part of the book ‘O Valor Emocional da Luz: Identidade e Cultura’, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Maio 2016.
Este espaço dedica-se a um conjunto de livros, artigos e poemas que devem fazer parte do universo cultural do LD. Estes livros, artigos e poemas podem não ser, necessáriamente, sobre iluminação, luz e sombra. Serão sim, leituras que deverão despertar sensibilidades, pensamentos e reflexões num exercício continuado de aprendizagem e aprofundamento, que um profissional, tão exposto a intervenções com carácter social e artístico, deverá (obrigatóriamente) integrar na sua formação.
Os entrevistados da revista PRISM|A|serão convidados a apresentar as suas propostas de leitura que ficarão aqui, igualmente, registadas. Pretendemos, assim, construir uma bibliografia variada que possa suscintar o interesse por nos mantermos atentos a novos universos de pensamento.
Deixo, desde já, as minhas primeiras propostas que, aliás, constam na Introdução ao Livro  ‘The emotional Value of Light: identity and culture”, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Maio 2016.
