Light Observation #3

1.) My Room Wednesday Night 2/14/18 @ 8pm.

2.) A Lava Lamp on in my dark room. The lava Lamp has a cool temperature, it is a light blue. The small Lava lamp is siting on top of my white bureau shelving in the corner of my room. My curtains are down blocking all of the Uniondale streetlights. The light turns the corner of my room a bright light blue. The beams reaches out to about 3/4 of my room and fades out before it can reach the forth wall. My walls are a light green color and when mixed with the blue light it made a very light blue-green, more blue than green. The blue light also reflected off my TV screen and gave some extra light to my bed.

3.) This light gives me an interstellar feeling. I feel like I am in a space ship that is far out in deep space. The only light source that can be seen is the blue light source running the life tanks.

Light Observation #3

Date: 2/15 Time: 6:30 pm Location: Downtown Riverside, Ca


Description: Suspended over the street, large red “lanterns” hang.  The Lanterns are a somewhat-oval shape, with gold trim. The lanterns, accompanied by the yellowish light of the streetlamps and the bright blues of the car’s headlights illuminate the street.


Subjective description: Inviting and caring, the large, red lanterns draw you in with intrigue.  These beautiful, spherical-ish balls of light create intrigue and a sense of energy.

4) this photo, of a concert of some sort shows people sort of illuminated with pink, lavender and magenta light, with their hands silhouetted by light on stage.  The light on stage sort of draws the person looking at the photograph in, drawing them to the bright white lights and the beam of light it produces contrasted with the dark, purple and pink hues of the sky in the back, and the people in the foreground


Lighting Observation #3

1) 15 February 2018//11:39pm//The Witches Brew

2) There are many light sources. Candles on the tables. Warm light coming from old fashioned bulbs. String lights. Many red light bulbs. There are a lot of Mylar balloons that are reflecting all the different light sources. Most candles are in clear glass containers but some are in red glass. There is also silver tinsle slightly swaying and reflecting light. The rotating fan blades also throw light around the space.

3) Everything about this place exudes warmth. The smell of the food and coffee. All the candles. The red lights. There are so many things that would be out of place that all find a home here. You can tell that it was once a home because it  still has the living space feeling. Every surface is dimly lit and a part of the story. The music is the only thing that definitively makes this place feel modern, even with the Mylar balloons. There is just something magic in the eclecticism of the cafe. The way the lights bounce around and get absorbed by the blackness of the wall but dance across and reflect off of everything else gives this space it’s witchy flicker.
