Light Observation

3/2/2017  12:30 AM my dorm room

Red light from the symbol of my roommate’s Mac, bright white light flashing from next to my bed from below basking the immediate area in light.  General darkness.

Red light glaring straight at me from across the room.  Flashes of white light illuminating the ceiling every minute.  The incessant attack on my ability to sleep at a normal time irritated me to the core.  Though the red glaring light is a constant most nights, it felt particularly offensive when the group chat was giving my phone a seizure.

Light Observation: A glow in the dark of the alien’s classroom

2 Feb. 2016 – 9:18am – Classroom 0028 in the Basement of Breslin Hall

The room was dark besides the florescent light I let in from the hallway as I cracked the door open and a soft bluish green glow from the computer screen way over on the other side of the room. This light from the screen illuminated a circle on the white wall to the left of it, and one of the technical difficulty emergency phones was located just off middle in the circle. It is the lighting on the wall that caught my eye, not the pools of florescent lights that wafted onto the floor a few feet in front of me.

The lighting was mysterious and eerie since it was surrounded by shadows and darkness and since it was such a peculiar color. This lighting would not have been out of place in a murder mystery play in which a character is scared of the phone because the ringing of the phone always signals something bad. Thanks to the hue, the lighting seemed sickly. In the murder mystery play example, this could represent the mindset and paranoia of the afraid character. It mirrors the feeling of quintessential fear that a person home alone at night who starts hearing spooky sounds must possess. Soft, circular, and contrasting with the surroundings like something out of another universe, it could have been the light that emitted from an alien spaceship’s beams of abduction. This lighting moment touched a chord and got under the viewer’s skin by being a reminder of mortality and that there is so much uncertainty out there. It presented the fear of the unseen and the fear of the unknown mysteries of life like when a person will die. Thus, the lighting resembled in color, distribution, and intensity whatever the torch or lamp of the Grim Reaper looks like and inspired fear and thoughts of the supernatural in its beholder.

Beja Light Observation:

Date, Time, Location: Monday March 12th, 2011; 10:59PMish, a friends house

Objective Description: multiple phones being charged in the night

Subjective Description: as all the lights are off in my friends kitchen, the only light emitting was from the multiple phones reminding the world of its power by the red lights located on their top. As all 4 phones charge they light on and off never being lit at the same time. this gave a fire fly effect, but instead of green, with a passionate fiery glow.
