4-Corner Path Statue

  1. Location: March 6, 2017 at 11:15 near Spiegel Theater
  2. Objective: In the center of a crossroad is a twisted, melted onyx statue. On all 4 corner there are lamp posts that shine around the statue, but not directly onto it.
  3. Subjective: This represents the not only the directions of north, south, east and west, but also the different directions that you take in life. There is never a clear answer, as each road leads to this unformed thing at the center. While there is a grotesqueness about this unknown entity, there is also a beauty about not knowing what is going to happen.

Light Observation

  1. 3/8/17, 11:45 pm, behind Hofstra Hall
  2. In front of Calkins, the footlight coming from below the flagpole was creating a shadow against the flags. This illumination also created a shadow on the grass from the nearby statue.
  3. I was walking behind Hofstra Hall late at night. I turned to check if the Calkins cat was sitting in her normal spot, but the flagpoles in front of Calkins quickly caught my attention. Aside from the consistent light the moon provided, I had realized the area was particularly well lit. The light flooded around the nearby objects, creating various shadows in many forms. These shadows wrapped the surrounding ground and buildings, giving a very eerie feeling to the scene. The footlight below the flag poles pointed up towards the flags themselves. As the wind moved the flags, the shadows they had casted moved as well. The statue that stood in front of Calkins was lit as well, casting a tall shadow which loomed over the entire quad.

Photo Cred:

Theme: Spooky

Description: This is a picture of a statue found in a graveyard. I personally find both statues and graveyards to be very creepy and uncomfortable which is why I chose this picture. The light is cast on the statue’s face at an angle so the shadows that are cast make it look even creepier.

Lighting Observation: 3/4

Date: 2/28/16

Time: 3:34 pm

Location: The Highline NYC

Objective Description: The sun has just started to go start it’s quick decent into the evening and just across the Highline, the Statue of Liberty could be seen. The sun was hitting it at such an angle that it was both reflecting off of it and creating a silhouette.

Subjective Description: The cool breeze sent chills across the spine as the warm sun opposed such sensations from the unusual heat of its rays on that warm February day. The sky was illuminated with hues of blues and pale yellows, revealing a pale pink gradient that painted the afternoon sky. The reflection of an object in the distance emphasized by the sun’s intensity left you no choice but to focus on that singular figure in the middle of a sparkling blue body of water. The silhouette of a woman reaching out towards the sky looked as if she was lighting her torch from the power of the Sun’s burning glow. Liberty was prominent.
