This observational work references the cyclical nature of their immediate surroundings, which are intentionally generic, and visually explores the consistent attempt to diminish darkness.

Lighting has long played a role in shaping the urban and rural way of life, both culturally and socially. Historically, rural dwellers in particular were always much more closely linked to the rhythms of nature, the rising and falling of the sun being a familiar daily phenomenon for those who worked the land.

It questions the necessity for artificial light at all in many of the vacant, absent scenes presented. Darkness is as essential to our biological make up, our internal clock, as light itself. The regular oscillation of waking and sleep in our lives – one of our circadian rhythms – is nothing less than a biological expression of the regular oscillation of light on Earth.
