The Sky Factory provides one with the highest quality Illusions of Nature™ and to do so affordably.

We rely on vision as the primary delivery system of light-transmitted data for the cognitive processes that lead to perception. Witherspoon's February 12th workshop presentation "Nature, Light, and the Fork in the Road" will focus on lighting use and application as a biophilic imperative. The workshop explores light driven illusions generated by solid state and video technologies and how these illusions are judiciously applied as a powerful tool to modify the built environment and enliven essential biophilic responses in the physiology and psychology of human occupants.

According to Biophilia Hyposthesis, we have a genetic predisposition for contact with nature and such contact is necessary if we are to maintain a positive experience of life without dislocation, disorientation and disease. Biophilic illusions are environmental inputs that trigger biophilic engagement and natural biological processes even though the source is not nature itself.

The Sky Factory is Witherspoon's most recent project in a career of more than 40 years as an artist and instigator of six startup companies that have explored the deep intersection of science, art and nature. The "Nature, Light, and the Fork in the Road" workshop will take place inside Hyatt Grand Ballroom C, on Tuesday February 12th from 1:30 - 2:00 pm, at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
