OPUS is designed to create hands-on, investigative opportunities for businesses and small or large enterprises within Wales, to consider how Light might proffer some new applications which are appropriate within their place of work. The purpose of OPUS is to encourage consideration of (i) the professional uses and benefits of incorporating Light-based technologies within the work place and (ii) the personal development of an interest in Light concepts for every person employed in Wales.
The practical feature of OPUS is an emphasis on the hands-on experience and involvement in actually performing Light-based Observations and Investigations, which will lead to the achievement of highly imaginative Design outcomes. These Design outcomes are new applications of Light-based concepts – and hence activating a greater sensitivity to the benefits of seeing Light in a different Light.
There are many valuable personal, transferable skills acquired through Investigations into what can be achieved with Light. The powerful personal resources of Imagination, Insight, and Ingenuity of any individual will always lead to the creation of highly innovative, new applications of Light.
