Kit Cuttle Interview 2018 (No CEU)
IES Past-President Mark Roush sits down with Kit Cuttle at the 2018 IES Annual Conference in Boston, MA.
Fascinating in every way, this main stage interview was one of the highlights of an Annual Conference that had plenty of them and has been called the best conference in recent memory. Kit Cuttle explains his theory of transforming how we approach lighting design and metrics. Not to be missed!
