Light Observation #1

1. 1/31/13, 3:00pm, Art History Classroom in Breslin


2. Flicker from small overhead recessed lights that need to be replaced, glow from presentation screen


3. The recessed lighting comes from the center of the classroom, and with the dark edges of the room and the flicker of a bulb that needs to be replaced, the room has a very ominous feel, almost like a horror movie. The screen creates a stark glow when compared to the light from the softer recessed bulbs, and the brightness is uncomfortable in contrast. Between the glow and the flickering, although the room is full of people, it feels empty, and cold, sort of like a movie is playing in an empty theatre. It’s creepy, and I hope someone replaces this bulb before the next class.
