    The Light Inside is an interactive artwork created by James Turrell in 1999. It was made for the purpose of connecting two of the main Museum of Fine Arts buildings in Houston, and it is directly beneath Houston’s Main Street. Along that space, there are lights with the sole function of guiding you through the pitch black tunnel while keeping you on the dark pathway, and away from the edge. While going through this tunnel, you will experience Turrell’s favorite aspect of art - light. In this work, the artist uses light to guide you through the interactive experience of losing your senses. The tunnel is truly disconcerting; the floor rises and dips in random places, and the only thing that you can see is the soft light coming from either side…

    holes interact with light, reflecting so little, that they do not let any escape. That is dark but the intense energies created by black holes in the process of eating stars is anything but dark. The level of complexity of light and dark that we see in the universe can also be seen in James Baldwin’s short story “Sonny’s Blues”. In “Sonny’s Blues”, James Baldwin looks past the normal literary uses of light and dark imagery as representing good and bad, but instead uses them to capture…

    As her glazed eyes scan the familiar surroundings, no shades of color are revealed; the crimson of a blood-stained sky is swallowed by the blackness of night and the luminous gray of hazy fog concealed by the sterile white of the sun’s rays. A world that was no longer understood lay before her; how should she traverse it if there is no light to guide her? Many characters throughout the course have found their own definition of a guiding force: money for Rick Deckard, the road for the man and the…

    already on my list. I soon began thinking about people and events that have changed my life or that have caused me to learn some sort of lesson. I was grateful my husband's love and support, as he goes to work to support our family even when he would rather be home with us instead. I became more grateful for my friends who not only encourage me to push forward and try harder, but also give me a way to help them and think outside myself. One day as I was driving to work I noticed the way the…

    Most of the colors are not very bright and do not have a great intensity to them. The darkness of the window is not bright, and the green of the coat is very muted but the reflection of the lights in the window does have a little intensity. There is also the highlighting and illumination by the lights on her shoulders and arms of the woman’s coat. The yellow of the woman’s hat is also bright which helps to draw attention to the woman and has a great contrast against the darker coloration of the…

    Continuation of Macabre. I opened the rusty door, and I peaked inside the dark and dusty cabin. Even though the moon was at its fullest, its light couldn’t even freckle a glimpse of light into the pitch dark cabin. Eerie was the only word that came to mind, the only word in my mind, the only word that made sense. I put my left foot in, and instantly a cold shiver drifted down my spine. I furiously turned around only to discover that there was nothing there. Just bank empty space. The Cold…

    A blue haze is washed over the stage as the lights suspended above cast shadows on the stage floor. Gobos light up the stage and spots pan over the audience, pulling in every sense of intrigue and curiosity within the audience. A ringtone is heard as the stage lights dim, a man appears in a spotlight leaning, virtually reaching out, but he seems to hold himself back, delaying the phone call for fear of what it might be. In Things I Know To Be True, Andrew Bovell shines light on a modern day…

    out a cloud of smoke thinking about her; since he was destined to have her. Taking another hit off his joint, he looks down the dark path to see her walking up the moon lit road. She was nervous, so she giggles" Pass that shit" holding her hand out while twirling her hips. Jamie smirks before handing the joint over to her "If it ain't green it ain't us" he repiled as he watches her lean against the gate next to him with one leg up on the bars. Inhaling a hit into her lungs noticing the almost…
