between dusk and dawn.
between dusk and dawn we get
organised with lights that we ourselves make and turn on. there is no comparison between these lights and daylight, they are too weak and rather
limited with their flickering intensity and long shadows.
but if i think of these lights, that we make, not as an attempt to oust the night, but rather as lights of the night, as an accentuation of the night, as intimate places of light in the obscurity created by
man, then they take on a beauteous quality, then they can reveal their magic.
what lights do we wish to use between dusk and dawn? what do we want to illuminate in our houses, cities and landscapes?
how and for how long? these are the questions of our culture.
