Light Observation #3

1) 2/15/18-2:42 pm- Unispan from North to South Side

2) OBJECTIVE DESCRIPTION: While walking on the Unispan, most of the light coming in was from the sun from the windows on my right side. In this particular moment, the trees blocked a lot of the sun, causing a silhouette of tree branches made of shadows. At the end of the Unispan I could see an area of full light from the sun as well.

3) SUBJECTIVE DESCRIPTION: In this moment, the way the shadows created a lace like effect on the ground caused the simple Unispan to be more eye catching and joyful. This type of lighting was not something I normally saw in the Unispan, which caused this fun feeling. It was also a happy sight to see from the “light at the end of the tunnel” effect from the sun. I was literally walking towards the light, which created this lighthearted mood.

Lighting Observation

Thursday 6pm, my dorm.

My dorm room on an overcast late afternoon

The sky is gray but the sun is desperately trying to shine through. With my blinds up my small room is still well lit. Every object has a grayish hue to it. Everything is calm.

Lighting Observation 10

  1. 4/9/2017, 4:30 PM, NAB Black Box
  2. The lighting designer for the dance concert was trying to program cues but forgot to add a cue for the scroller to change and it made every color appear on the stage in quick succession.
  3. As the LD was going through her cues before we ran Anita’s piece, she hit “Go” and suddenly the scrollers went through every single color available. It was a very funny moment as it took everyone by surprise and left the designer a bit flustered. Everyone was able to laugh about it and it was a nice break from the stress of the day.

Lighting Observation

  1. 4/6/17, 6:00 pm, Spiegel Theatre
  2. The stage lights in the Spiegel were off, and only a few of the house lights were on. You could see the lighting through the backdoor of the Spiegel.
  3. The clouds started to get darker, eventually leading to a sudden downpour. I ran into the Spiegel to escape the weather just as another roar of thunder commenced. I walked into a mostly dark space. The onstage lights had been turned off, but there were still some house lights on. It seemed as though the two back rows of the theatre were the only area where light was seen. As I walked down the aisle to get to the front row, I could see a burst of light coming from the side entrance. The lightning could be seen through the window of the side door, illuminating its surroundings. This gave me chills up my spine and almost immediately transformed the space into something more eerie than it previously was.

lighting observation

  1. my dorm room, midday Monday
  2. I had pulled an all nighter Sunday into Monday. I needed some sleep to get me through the day so I laid down in between classes.
  3. Coffee was brewing just out of sight. The lights were off but the room was still fully lit by the window even with the blinds fully closed. The room is filled with a quiet grey light. I don’t sleep so much as meditate, just laying in the calm cool light. It’s like I was trying to absorb the light as an energy source that coffee and sugar couldn’t fill.

Lighting Observation #6

1) DATE-TIME-LOCATION: March 6th, 11am, Breslin

2) OBJECTIVE DESCRIPTION: The room is lit up by the fluorescents, except for one corner of the classroom where the lights are out.

3) SUBJECTIVE DESCRIPTION: Brightness. Painful brightness from the glow of the fluorescents. They’re like a needle for the eye with the pain they cause. But there is one glimmer of peace. The corner, the lights no longer shine. I take comfort in looking at that corner. It is a sight for sore eyes. I concentrate on the darkness and try to block out the shrill glow from all of the other lights. I can’t wait to return to the natural light that awaits outside.

Lighting observation

  1.  Sunday night, next to Hofstra Hall
  2.  A light shines up illuminating only the front face of Hofstra Hall.
  3. The sharp light illuminated the front face of the building sharpening every edge. The old house is lit up at night like a flag pole, like it is demanding our respect. It seemed so noble and humble at the same time contradicting itself, all together so very Hofstra.

Light observation

Monday, 1o pm. Location: My dorm overlooking the student center

Objective Orange street light shines through my dirty dorm window. my glasses halo the beam.

subjective: An irritating orange glow shines in my eye. It bounces off of my glasses frame into my eye constantly proving it will not be ignored, despite multiple room configurations- and no the blinds do not block it.  I turn, to confront the light, it stretches out never brighter just more annoying. It highlights how dirty my window is, through no fault of my own its dirty on the outside. I never thought a light could be so annoying.

Lighting Observation #2

  1. Suffolk hall looking at Van Der Poel, February 7th, 2017
  2. Theres two dimly lit street lamps with the beams of light crossing each other,as they are pointed at each other in the foreground, and in the background is the dark outline of Van Der Poel, and the only thing you can see is the light from the windows.
  3. I was looking down the sidewalk and these two street lamps had caught my attention because the light was so ominous and then i had notice the residence hall lit up. It was so foggy i couldn’t see the building, but i could see the lights coming from the different rooms and it only added to the creepy lighting.

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.
