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.

Light Observation 3

  1. Wednesday, February 15th; 5:00 PM; Precision Urgent Care, Mineola
  2. Bright white fluorescent lighting
  3. I was sitting in the doctor’s office at urgent care, waiting for the doctor to come in and examine my jaw. The light made me feel very anxious, like I was somewhere far away from the warmth of home. It was warm in the office, but the light made it feel colder. I was filled with the desire to leave and go home, but the light made me feel like there was no escape. I closed my eyes and took deep breaths to calm down and get away from the harshness of the light for a while.

Photo Observation 2

Photo was taken by me, Jessica Perman


The Unispan at night can be an emotionless and foreboding path.  The harsh glares of the ceiling lights with the glares against the wall, dipping in and out.  It reminds me of a horror game, where the hallways seem endless and it’s practically abandoned.  The dark figure at the end draped in the harsh lighting adds to the foreboding mood of the photo.

I found this photo online at 

subject: cold

This is a photo of a hospital room. It has the token hospital color pallet of white, blue, and beige. It has a quality of psychological coldness not a lack of heat but a lack of life. It’s rigid and sanitary.

Light Observation 2

Thursday, February 9 around 5:30 PM; outside the Hague House

Sun was setting, low enough so that I couldn’t see the sun, but the sky was still rather pink, with hardly any variation, rather dim.

In the harsh cold, the sunset was a bleak disappointment.  Rather than offering any sense of warmth or comfort in the freezing air, it was plain and the pink of the sky looked as if someone had pulled a thin white sheet across the sky to dim the colors.  The pale image was no help in facing the cold.

Photo Observation #2

  1. February 9th, 2017, taken by me
  2. Cold
  3. I woke up on our snow day and saw all of these raindrops on my window and past it i saw dim white skies and the outlines of trees and it reminded me of the word cold. Everything about it seemed cold to me; the frozen rain, the snow and the dim light.

Photo Observation #2

I took this photo myself when I went into the city just before Christmas.

When I took this picture it wasn’t particularly cold outside, but the colors of the lights against the stone of the building gave me a sort of ominous, chilly feeling when I looked at it. It reminded me of an old palace, all stone and cold with no warmth at all.

Lighting Observation

  1. 2/9/17, 5:36 pm, Estabrook Hall
  2. OBJECTIVE: In the lounge on the 13th floor of Estabrook, the sunset is peaking through the clouds and coming in through the windows. The light coming from the sunset passes through the icicle, creating shadows on the couch.
  3. SUBJECTIVE: As the snowstorm departs, the sun begins to slowly make its way out of the clouds. The sky fills with colors as the sun slowly sets into the horizon, filling the room with a calming feeling. As the clouds continue to pass, the light shines through the icicles left hanging on the window from the storm. This creates specs of light scattered around the room and casts shadows the shape of the icicles on the couch. The wide array of colors within the sunset leaves a warm and comforting feeling in the room after the departure of the intense storm.

Photo Observation #2

Photo taken from Pintrest. Theme: Cold

The harsh streetlamps loom overhead, illuminating the the never-ending stretch of empty road. The uniform blue lights reaching off into the distance emphasizes the hollow and lonely world created within the photo, evoking a sense of unease.
