Designer's notes: 
The Cyber Security Challenge is a series of national competitions, learning programmes, and networking initiatives designed to identify, inspire and enable more EU citizens resident in the UK to become cyber security professionals. Established to bolster the national pool of cyber skills, it offers a unique programme of activities to introduce sufficient numbers of appropriately skilled individuals to learning and career opportunities in the profession. The clients only ask was for the lighting to help put pressure on the candidates. I started with a fairly well lit state and slowly made the room in the old war ship darker and more atmospheric throughout the challenge. In the last few hours of the challenge, the room was extremely dark with most of the light coming from the computer screens along with red emergency lights and festoon very dimly flickering from the small amount of power that the ship had left.
