Racha, you could try adapting the Greek story of creation. I do not know the story, but I have read that the oldest of the Greek Gods was called "Chaos" (because chaos comes before order). Therefore, you could start your design with a chaotic space or a chaotically lit space and gradually transform the chaos (the incoherence) of space and light into various forms of coherent light, such as the visible spectrum and even using ultra-violet and infra-red lighting.

As a starting point, perhaps this poem from Hafiz might help you? It takes into account both light and emotion (love):

Even after all this time,
The Sun never says to the Earth,
"You owe me".
Look what happens with a love like that:
It lights up the whole sky!

Dear Racha - you may want to look into the concept and execution of 'The Garden of 5 Senses'in New Delhi. Its designed by Architect Pradeep Sachdeva. You could contact the gentleman. Its an award winning design which had modulated spaces to evoke different sensations. Hope it helps ...
