Light Observation #10

1) DATE-TIME-LOCATION: April 12th, 9:20pm, Dorm room

2) OBJECTIVE DESCRIPTION: The tv is paused on a blue screen and the lights are off.

3) SUBJECTIVE DESCRIPTION: The only light in the room is the blue from the screen and street lights peeking through the blinds. There’s an eerie feel about the room. I’m afraid to leave the bed for fear of monsters underneath it. The lights from outside awash the room in shadows. It is time to continue the show and forget what lurks outside. Laughter is the best cure to fight the darkness.

6 Trees Without Anyone

  1. Location: In front of Lowe Hall, April 11, 2017 at 12:30.
  2. Objective: In front of the hall there are six rows of trees within a square grass lawn. Shadows are shifting towards Hauser Hall like spikes piercing through the grass. There is no people or animal on there during this cold, sunny day.
  3. Subjective: This image is isolating since this usual social place has no one in there. This reminds about how, despite it being sunny, the cold weather can force us all inside. It makes me think that, despite what want to do, the weather still has some control over our choices.

Lighting Observation

  1. Walking home past Gallon Wing 11:00 p.m.
  2. A flickering light in front of Gallon Wing
  3. I was walking home and it was pitch black, except for the lamp lights, and then i turned in front of the Gallon Wing academic hall and there was this very spooky flickering light on a lamp that created these really creepy shadows and i felt like i was in a horror movie.

photo observation

1 This is a photo of my old summer camp that I found at

2 Summer

3 I chose this photo because one when I think of Summer my first thought is of camp. I think the colors of the boats and the wash of sun light show a lot of warmth. I reminds me of refreshing days on the lake.

Light Observation

  1. 4/11/17, 9:30 pm, outside of CV Star.
  2. I was outside and it was dark but I noticed there was a big bright white light, it was the moon.
  3. I just got out of class and I was walking when I noticed a shinning light reflecting off of my phone screen and when I looked back there was the moon. It may sound simple and cliche but it was beautiful. Usually I think of the sun shinning bright in the sky especially when it’s nice weather. The moon caught my eye mostly because it was a full moon. Sometimes when there is a full moon it’s yellow and has more of a darker tone. It illuminated my surroundings. I love the color white and in my eyes the moon was shinning big, bright, and white.

Lighting Observation

Thursday 6pm, my dorm.

My dorm room on an overcast late afternoon

The sky is gray but the sun is desperately trying to shine through. With my blinds up my small room is still well lit. Every object has a grayish hue to it. Everything is calm.

Lighting Observation 10

  1. 4/9/2017, 4:30 PM, NAB Black Box
  2. The lighting designer for the dance concert was trying to program cues but forgot to add a cue for the scroller to change and it made every color appear on the stage in quick succession.
  3. As the LD was going through her cues before we ran Anita’s piece, she hit “Go” and suddenly the scrollers went through every single color available. It was a very funny moment as it took everyone by surprise and left the designer a bit flustered. Everyone was able to laugh about it and it was a nice break from the stress of the day.

Lighting Observation

  1. 4/9/17, 7:00 pm, Estabrook Hall
  2. Objective: The blinds on the left window of my room was completely shut, but the blinds on the right window were slightly opened. This allowed small streaks of light to come into the room. The room was fairly dark since the sun was setting.
  3.  Subjective: After a long day of non stop homework, I had the chance to lay down for a few minutes before doing some spring cleaning. Turning on the overhead lights would ruin the peaceful moment, so I opted for the natural light the sun provided. There was not much sunlight left since the sun was setting. There was however small streaks of light peaking through the partially cracked blinds. My attention immediately went to the newly formed lines on my wall created by the light. The stress I had previously felt slowly melted away and a desperately needed wave of relaxation emerged.

Light Observation

4/3/2017  8:00 PM  Student center, kitchen area

There was smoke coming from Grill’d that I was able to see because it was right below a light.  The light was a single bulb that gives off fluorescent light and it lit the smoke about a foot down from the ceiling.

The swirling cloud existed in one place.  Though it moved constantly as if it were bursting with activity, it could only live in the light from the cold sun above its head.  Without the radiation from above, the cloud would never be seen.  It was as if it were feeding on the sun and each particle in the cloud was fighting for its fill.

4-Corner Path Statue

  1. Location: March 6, 2017 at 11:15 near Spiegel Theater
  2. Objective: In the center of a crossroad is a twisted, melted onyx statue. On all 4 corner there are lamp posts that shine around the statue, but not directly onto it.
  3. Subjective: This represents the not only the directions of north, south, east and west, but also the different directions that you take in life. There is never a clear answer, as each road leads to this unformed thing at the center. While there is a grotesqueness about this unknown entity, there is also a beauty about not knowing what is going to happen.
