Abstract: Crepuscularis is a lighting project that envisions design as a way of waking the human consciousness towards the self, the senses and the mind. The title of the project, inspired by the emotive quality of the crepuscular rays that occur during the hours around dawn and dusk when the contrasts between light and darkness are most significant, therefore is a metaphorical symbolism of an awakening light. With a series of lighting designs that interpret and translate subtle spiritual philosophy of Existence, Impermanence and Emptiness, the project would explore the human experiences - interaction, sensation and contemplation - with light¬. Bringing forth the notion of light, while being an entity within human activities, is a phenomenon of nature to begin with, the project attempts to connect the parallel relation between light as entity and phenomenon by rendering the phenomenal qualities of light into designed lamps that not only function as products but works that affect our actions, emotions and thoughts. This is achieved with the project spanning from the domain of design to that of art, where the designing of a product and the process of artistic creation convene. The final outcome is a triad of lamps titled ‘Sanctum’, ‘Mirage’ and ‘Eclipse’ respectively; where together they objectify light phenomena into a sensible and viable conceptual tangibility for the everyday.
