Light is very important in order to estimate emotionally environments and situations. Perception provoke feelings and contribute to create the sense of comfort in people. That is true in particular way for hospitals and all places that come perceived with intensity, and sometimes tension. Environments where we feel emotional states so strong that often make us reason about the sense of life, like actors or simply spectators.
