Narration of Slide 35

Listen to the Audio (MP3, 321 KB) or read the transcript:

Passage through corridor spaces is dependent upon the provision of adequate cues and the ability to see those cues if they are present. The corridor to the left in this slide has intense natural lighting from one side and deep shadows against a wall on the other - in the intense natural lighting of the photograph. With the empathic lens in place, the person at the window-wall is only a shadow and hard to identify. In the narrow corridor to the right, the corridor has sufficient lighting to allow visibility of the walls and floors, but the overhead lighting is providing significant direct glare. Cues are absent from this space.
