Lighting Observation #8: Mood Lighting in the Booth

11 March 2016-3:41pm-Colonial Square East Dorm Security Booth and Desk

The sun shines through the window suddenly and illuminates details and causes shadows that weren’t there a moment ago.

The light makes the the window look musty and dirty; like a portal to an older time when windows aren’t clean as much. It gives a a bluish and greenish tint to the pages of my notebook like they are sick with some sort of deadly illness, and it causes many shadows that emphasize the edges of things like lighting a human face to point out wrinkles and age. Overall, the lighting gives a feeling of oldness and allows reflection on the past and present with the tone that it gives to the room and its objects. The light’s reflections off of the binder ring of the binder with the names of the residents in it also add a feeling of magic. It makes the room transform into a timeless place and it causes  reminiscent thoughts. In this moment, the lighting is like that which might be used in a flashback scene in a film. It makes the entire world resemble an old book with its soft and yet powerful light. The light is also golden like the yellowed pages of a book. It shimmers and the shadows flicker a little bit adding to the dream-like quality and feeling of being transported to another time. The distribution of the light comes from the window behind the desk and fills up only about half of the booth where I sit at the desk. It does not touch the cool half of the booth with the exit to the outside world The lighting is reflexive, questioning time, the past, and my perception of these objects with its qualities. The lighting has a feeling of being old and looking back, a feeling of reminiscence.

4. It is the crack of dawn on a desolate beach, and the sun has begun to light up the deep blue sky.  Shining over the horizon, rays of red, orange and yellow cast down upon the hot sand.  The beaming sun shines down on two lush trees creating long, dark shadows along the ground. The silhouettes of the trees lie on the seemingly blue sand that hasn’t been fully illuminated by the sun’s inviting rays.  The golden light can fool anybody into thinking they are in a dream.

4) I trudged down the pier, my feet felt like sandbags. The clouds streamed in around my head, making the scene feel like I was approaching the judgment day. The water below me reflected the dark night sky, and I could see shapes moving beneath the water. I could only imagine what lay below the surface of the water- creatures from the darkest corners of my mind. I walked down the pier further, passing the dimly lit benches. Through the clouds, the waning daylight peeked through, reminding that soon, all would be dark and still. I continued on to the end of the pier, where my nightmares awaited in the house at the end. The boathouse, hidden in shadow, was my final destination. Then, I woke up.
