Anna Josephine Winther Plouvier
Growing up in Scandinavia, Copenhagen, light has always been something important. When the sunlight returns in spring, the mood of the city lifts. I have always been fascinated by the directness and boldness of the sun. The way it penetrates a space and lingers around creating light and a new space. The importance it has on our health, both mentally and physically.
Stress has become a more and more normal condition. The answer to solve it is often linked to slowing down, getting in touch with nature. There are hundreds of hour long videos on youtube with nature sounds for people with stress or insomnia. You can buy lamps imitating sunlight, and take a vitamin d supplement.
But is it really the same? What are the effects of fake nature, fake light? Can our body and nervous system sense the difference even if it looks the same to the naked eye?
