Light Observation #10

1) April 17-1:22am-Lounge Room in Dorm

2) OBJECTIVE DESCRIPTION: Two strands of star shaped lights string around on the walls. The lights change individually through a rainbow of colors. There are no other lights on in the room except for these colorful lights.

3) SUBJECTIVE DESCRIPTION: This lighting moment made me feel very calm. It was such a soft and pretty arrange of colors it made me feel safe and a little magical. Because of how the colors were not very natural colors, it made the room feel magical. This lighting moment was calming even with all the stress of life.

Light Observation #10

April 18th, 2018/ 5pm/ The Unity Project-Memorial (Calkins) Quad

Objective Description: I’m standing under the layer of yarn strings. The strings are blocking out the sun but there are many cracks that let in the suns rays.

Subjective Description: The Unity Projects giant yarn quilt is already beautiful, but having the sun shine from above it makes the yarn glow in a rainbow pattern. The cracks in the quilt also shine straight through and you can almost “see” the beams if you look down at the grass.

Lighting Observation 10

1. 4/17/2018, 12:45 A.M. In Alliance Hall

2. My keyboard is a mechanical keyboard with changing colors underneath. It can be edited through software to change to the moods of fire, to ripple with green acid, to flow with a rainbow. All of these have different lighting effects with cools and warm lighting.

3. All of the functions add the effect of calm warmness to you. From the cool tones chiming on the keys or the transition of the rainbow across my keyboard as I watch it. It’s like my own little light show in my room which makes me very happy.

Lighting Observation #10

  1. April 9th / 10PM / Peninsula Boulevard
  2. A completely empty highway without any lighting except a single streetlamp far in the distance.
  3. As I drove back to campus after a trip home, I noticed the street was dangerously dark. My fear only rose when I noticed the streetlight glowing down the street. The amber light was soft and lit a wide area.

Light Observation #9

1. Date: April 9, 2018
Time: 10:00am
Location: Right in front of Emily Lowe Hall
2. During the sunrise, the sun hits some of the trees on the quad. It creates a very defined look.
3. The way the sun hits the trees at this time in the morning inspires a fleeting sense of comfort. This lighting provides clarity and warmth to an otherwise dreary and objectively boring collection of trees.

Light Observation #9

1) April 5th, 2018-6:38pm-Subway Station (central park)

2) OBJECTIVE DESCRIPTION: A strong, amber light shines on an Alice in Wonderland mural in a subway station. The mural is on my left side while the train tracks are on my right. The light is so amber it appears almost orange. There is no other cool toned lights in the area except for near the turnstiles.

3) SUBJECTIVE DESCRIPTION: In this moment instead of feeling the calmness that can come from amber lights, it made me feel sick. Normally amber lights are soft and nice feeling. Amber lights can make me feel sleepy, however this was a very different moment. It was such a strong color, it made my skin look different and grossly. The lighting made me uncomfortable and antsy to get out of the station; however, since we had to wait for the next train, I had to deal with the uncomfortable lighting for quiet sometime.

Light Observation #9

1.) Sitting outside Bill of Right, 10 P.M. 4/12/2018

2.) The moon was out and I was relaxing with some friends, two of which were smoking at the time. They were using a very smoke intensive thing so the fumes floated and stayed in the air since there was no wind. These fumes went so far into the air that it went in front of the warm light of a street light.

3.) The way that the smoke went in front of the light it added a gorgeous haze to the light pushing though it. It made the feeling of sitting in a sauna or hot springs where everything has become vapors and you just see the light push through. It made a relaxed feeling wash over you from the way the light was diffused even more to make it seem it was even later than it was mixed with the grey.

Light Observation #8

1) 2/27/2018 2AM at Neverspan

2) Looking out west towards the stadium and the major roads appear from the middle of the Neverspan at night had an odd contrast. On the outside only the blinking of soft orange lights caught my eye. Surrounded by either darkness or the harsh white of cars and buildings it was this nice calming blinking. While on the inside it was a harsh light white that surrounded everything, making the inside feel sterile.

3) When looking at the orange construction lights I felt some sense of safety or calmness almost. The sharp contrast between the darkness and the bright white allowing for a zen feeling of the in between. This contrast of dark and light and the in between, it truly is nice.


Light Observation #7

  1. March 15, 2018 / 11pm / My dorm
  2. The room is lit only by a single LED bulb in a lamp. There’s a green cardigan over the lamp changing the hue of the lamp light to a subtle green.
  3. The light green hue of the light made the room feel enveloped in nature, as if the sun were shining through the leaves of trees.

Light Observation #7

1.March 15th, inside the Student Center Theater.

2. Sitting in the theater I was prepared to watch the 1-3rd monologues with a few friends. The lighting was either all off for blackout, or horrible led lighting above the actors which did nothing to help see their faces. However there was a moment a bed was laid out, and all the lights went out except for a single amber bean that spread across it.

3. Some relate bed to safety and home, a place where you can’t be hurt. But when I see a room and there is only led’s and harsh white light on it; I don’t even feel the bed is sacred, that it is more of a place blinded than a place safe. However with the low light of the amber on a bed it becomes some place warm, cozy, a place to relax. It made me want to just be comfortable and safe in my bed and not worry at all about anything at all.
