Everything we perceive visually is a result of light travelling across the universe, striking an object and bouncing off to our eyes. Think about that for a second.
Next time you catch the hint of someone's blue eyes through their dark sunglasses. The next silhouette you see crossing the road, backlit by the lights beyond. The next time a seam in a window sends a multi-colored beam across the books on your mahogany table.
Conjure your favorite image in your mind. Or your best visual memory. Try to imagine it with flat, green, florescent light coming down from directly overhead. Ruined it, didn't I. Light can convert something from innocent to sinister. Light separates art from pornography.
I'm inspired by the huge opportunities presented by light in Art Direction and Design. And by the small gifts it us in our everyday lives.
