Student Narrative

How often do we notice light? The waning, shifting, fluid brightness of dusk. Or the sharp, clear, crisp sunlight of noon. Or even the flickering, static, glowing fluorescence of night. Light is so fundamental to our experience of reality and time, and yet it so often passes unnoticed in our daily lives. This book explores both the forms that light creates and the progression of time as revealed in these shifting shapes. The accordion book defies a clear start and end, allowing the viewer to progress through the pages in a single uninterrupted motion similar to our experience of constantly moving time.
