Aggression in an urban nightlife setting is more than just a physical fight or a verbal insult. Aggression is also the tension floating in the air; changes in which are noticed by visitors, police officers and security guards. It seems that when this tension in the atmosphere increases so does, the likelihood of aggressive behavior in the crowd. Although most researchers acknowledge that aggression is a highly context dependent behavior, to date it has predominantly been studied in controlled laboratory settings.

To research the effect of lighting on people ILI uses Living Labs – real life environments where concepts are explored in close collaboration with users. Adaptive lighting settings and its effect on users on individual level and group settings are explored while simultaneously researching the new possibilities with sensors and data analytics.

Philip Ross, designer at Studio Philip Ross, and ILI researcher Indre Kalinauskaite share an interest in the relationship between light and human behaviour. They created the light installation Lux Agitat Molem for the Glow-Next festival in Eindhoven to explore the question: Does light move people?

Predicting cross-modal associations between aggression, brightness, and colour with the OPAC context model

Although researchers have repeatedly shown that the affective meaning of the same concept can vary across different contexts, it has proven difficult to predict when people will assign which meaning to a concept. To understand when and how the affective meaning of a concept is activated in specific contexts, we propose a multidimensional context model, the OPAC (opposition & activation) context model, based on the affective theory of meaning (Osgood, Suci, & Tannenbaum, 1957) and the polarity correspondence principle (Proctor & Cho, 2006).

Spotlight on Aggression

"A short article describing the project in the magazine of TU/e's Intelligent Lighting Institute".

Almost on a daily basis, the media report of aggression. Defusing aggressive escalation in such situations is no mean feat and sometimes requires the active intervention of experts. But in De-escalate, a strategic research project funded by NWO, researchers investigate whether interactive lighting may help serve to confine, contain and control aggressive events.

Indammen van agressie met dynamische verlichting

"Een korte beschrijving van het De-escalate project"

Steeds vaker berichten de media van escalerend gedrag, vaak gepaard gaand met verbale of fysieke agressie. Gedrag van mensen kan escaleren op allerlei plaatsen: op straat, in uitgaansgebieden, bij servicedesks, sociale diensten, huisartsposten, op locaties waar hulpverleners noodsituaties het hoofdbieden, in gevangenissen, in de psychiatrie. Verschillend als deze contexten zijn, ze hebben een aantal belangrijke kenmerken gemeen: (1) gedragsescalatie is ongewenst en kan leiden tot gevaarlijke situaties, (2) er is zelden een deskundige mediator voorhanden om de escalatie te ontzenuwen.

De-escalate: Defusing escalating behaviour through the use of interactive light scenarios

"Based on a review of the current literature, we present our vision and theoretical framework, which should provide the basis for empirically exploring light as a means for de-escalation."

To be presented at: Experiencing Light 2014, International conference on the effects of light on wellbeing, November 10-11, Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
