Let There Be Light: Beautiful Instillations

Dear Readers,
Happy Friday, everyone.
After plenty of rain (and snow!) the sun is finally shining again here in New York.  As I traveled to work, I noticed that the bright sky brought a smile to the faces of many New Yorkers and it made me think of the impact light can have on us.
As artists, many of us rely on it both its natural and artificial forms to help us highlight our work, create an ambiance and even altar moods as I noticed on my commute.
Today, I thought it might be nice to showcase a couple of light instillation’s that I found interesting.  Please take a look and share your thoughts.
Also, how do you use light in your work? How does light impact your own mood?
Have a wonderful weekend!
