There is more reference to viewing simple devices of this sort in following chapters. The concepts of visual constancy and modes of appearance are enormously instructive for lighting designers. Once we have viewing conditions sufficient to enable objects to be recognized, these objects will be perceived to retain their identifying attributes over a large range of lighting conditions. There is limited scope to modify the perceptions of object characteristics while visual constancy applies. For example, the perceived hue and saturation of an object may be influenced by the colour-rendering properties of the lamps.

Although diffraction scattering was mentioned, it involves interactions with very small particles and is not of concern for indoor lighting. This leaves the following processes: • Absorption is almost inevitable, in fact, the only process mentioned that does not involve some degree of light absorption is total internal reflection.
