Water attracts people because humans love and need water. It’s not just us saying this: it turns out that there are scientific reasons that explain why we’re so drawn to lakes, rivers, and oceans. Wallace J. Nichols, Ph.D, a marine biologist and the author of Blue Mind, talks about the immeasurable sense of peace that we feel around water, and about how we turn to water for a chance to escape the hyper-connected, over-stimulated state of modern day life, in favor of a rare moment of solitude.
Light attracts people, too. Countless studies have shown that light alters mood, draws the eye, influences behavior and simply makes people happy.
With water and light being so important to humans, putting them together is a sure-fire way to turn any space into a talking point. From simple strings of lights that accent a statue to larger-than-life light art sculptures that seems to dance above a body of water, changing color and creating atmosphere, here are some ways to transform your water feature into something that draws the eyes with light.
Oh, and if you’re worried about safety, don’t: we only use IP67 certified products near water, just in case, to make sure that there are no risks of tricky electrical situations!
