Road Tunnel International Conference

Barcelona / Spain 8 – 10 October 2015
Case study: Hondsrug Tunnel, the Netherlands
Function: participant & researcher in collaboration with light artist
Titia Ex

We look at the background and execution of the radical lighting in the Hondsrug Tunnel in Emmen, the Netherlands. Is dynamic, colourful lighting really safer for motorists than static monochromatic lighting? What can it tell us about driver engagement? Titia Ex, the lighting designer behind the project, explains the theory and execution of the project.
