Embedding lighting systems into architectural structures offers new interaction possibilities. They can be exposed to a large number of users, thus there is a demand for such interface solutions that fit the context of use. Using two examples of experimental, novel interaction methods with light, we propose that there are various potential approaches to using implicit and explicit control mechanisms. We share our implementations in hopes that they will inspire possible future projects and have applications in other contexts.
