S.A.D. Sculpture, (Seasonal Affective Disorder Sculpture)

S.A.D. Sculpture or, Seasonal Affective Disorder Sculpture was developed not only a response to having enduring the extended Seattle winter for five years before moving to Philadelphia, but also as an experiment with the notion that art is good for you. Fitted with a full spectrum lighting system, S.A.D. Sculpture, under the right circumstance, is actually good for you to look at. The light emitted from the sculpture mimics daylight and can be used to reduce the amount of melatonin the body produces, theoretically lessening the symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder.
