“But you still need the two: the dark and the light. You can’t see one without the other.” Julia Green
The light study was influenced by the famous New York blackouts where the city goes through a weird and wonderful transformation from the city of light to a black canvas. This short error in the national grid allows for a new type of city life experience to take place, where small light islands created by traffic or by a candle to be gratified and appreciated in a unique way. The absence of light gives right to darkness but this shouldn’t necessarily means the fading of vision. What if the dark revealed and the light concealed.
This study investigates how polarizing light can be used to manipulate light in order for it to conceal rather than reveal. Through the use of light and light filtration a set of light drawing are created to demonstrate light qualities.
