Artificial lighting systems that are controllable by users are becoming more common. Even though such systems are called smart lighting, most interactions with such devices are limited to color and brightness changing. Lights controlled in such a way often juxtapose with their environment and do not result in wanted atmospheres. This thesis explored a design space of working with artificial light and how it can be utilized in new ways to recreate natural light settings. Our explorations resulted in an array of smaller prototypes that embody our ideas and knowledge. These prototypes were used in public experiments to start conversations. As the final artifact, we created an exhibition with an interactive installation and a series of posters that communicate our idea of ambient light sampling and recreation.
