Light
At The 2017 Burning Man
Decompression Party
Pier 70, San Francisco, California

The primary properties of visible light are intensity, propagation direction, frequency or wavelength spectrum, and polarization, while its speed in a vacuum, 299,792,458 meters per second, is one of the fundamental constants of nature. Visible light, as with all types of electromagnetic radiation (EMR), is experimentally found to always move at this speed in a vacuum. [from wikipedia]

Blue lights shined upward at the effigy of a man. Fake firelight surrounded the base of the man. Fake fire was safer than real fire, because it protected children from burns.

Sunlight shone through a back window of the warehouse and backlit a diffuser used to soften light for photography.

A work of art, set up as a line of panels, created a moving sequence of light patterns. It also backlit the folks viewing the art.
