Lighting Observation #9

1) Wednesday March 28, 2012 – 12A.M. – Alliance Hall Bathroom

2) The tower bathrooms have two large mirrors, one in front of the sink and one on the wall directly opposite. Both these walls have fluorescent lighting stretching all the way across the top of the mirrors, and in this particular moment, one of the lights was flickering on and off.

3) So, this was a lighting moment right out of a thriller moment. I was staring into one mirror, while the one behind me had a flickering fluorescent bulb above it. When two mirrors are directly opposite of each other, and you stand directly in front of one, an illusion is given where the reflection continues for ever. This made one flickering light seem like an entire row of flickering lights and I was in front of all those. In a scary movie, this is where the monster, or killer would appear during one of the flickers and disappear in the next. The feeling this moment gave me was not a good one, it made the hairs on the back of my neck stand and I got out as soon as I could.
