My mission for this project was to explore four different aspects or perspectives that involve light: Color, Interaction, Emotion, and Metaphor.

Light As Color

Light As Color analyzes the way light interacts with color through projections and patterns. Two projectors were set up on both sides of a room, projecting a variety of different patterns. Different colored gels were placed over each projector, so that the projections would overlap. Each pattern explores the the way that colors mix through light, and what shapes would be created based off of the different color separations.

Light As Emotion

Light as Emotion is risograph printed using fluorescent pink and medium blue, two very contrasting colors, almost referencing the emotions happy and sad. The risograph allowed me to play with overlap and transparency, something that cannot be done on a laser printer. It also created a fun challenge with the limited color palette, as I wanted to see how far I was able to push the concept, allowing the risograph technique to influence my design. 

Light As Interaction

Light as Interaction explores the role that light plays in interacting with everyday objects, creating reflections, shapes, and shadows beside or within the objects. This book is laser and risograph printed.

Light as Metaphor

Light as Metaphor explores the different metaphors that we use in everyday life that involve light in one way or another. I chose to make this book out of fabric with embroidered content and found fabrics to demonstrate how loosely we use these terms, and how we "weave" them into our vocabulary.

The Compilation

The Compilation is all four light books combined. The challenge was to compile them into a 100 page book that remains cohesive. The gif pictured above is a sneak peak of each section.
