Light Observation

  1. Tuesday, March 14th, 7:45 pm; Bill of Rights Hall 12th Floor Kitchen
  2. The stadium lights reflecting off of the field hockey field’s snow.
  3. While enjoying a much wanted snow day with friends, I saw out the large wall-length window in the kitchen what I thought to be a freshly laid ice rink.  Excited, I asked my friend about Hofstra’s new winter wonderland addition, only to notice upon closer look through the window it was actually just the stadium lights reflecting off of the snow to give it a sheer, glossy appearance.  I found it very cool (no pun intended) that the light was able to take one texture and make it appear to be something different, and it made me wonder how often lighting designers do that onstage with different materials and fabrics.
