Sky Factory / Exhibition partner

Sky Factory, Inc., is a fine arts and technology company, the only designer of evidence-based, virtual skylights. Unlike other image-based products, our process is uniquely informed by neuroscience. Our award-winning Luminous SkyCeilings and Luminous Virtual Windows engage areas of the brain involved in spatial cognition and depth perception.

Sky Factory’s artistic framework, Open Skies Image Technology, has been the subject of an award-winning fMRI study. The company’s unique process includes deliberately designed Open Sky Compositions woven into the ceiling surface by which we generate a deeper multisensory response that alters the observer’s experience of interior space.

Sky Factory’s research-verified illusions of nature™ are the only virtual skylights to have received recognition from the International Academy of Design & Health, the Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) and Planetree International, a global patient advocacy group. The company’s unique photography has also earned recognition from an international architectural jury (Architizer A+ Awards, Jury Winner, Product + Healthcare).

Sky Factory’s peer-reviewed research on biophilic illusions of nature has been presented at the Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture (ANFA) at The Salk Institute.
