Then from metal came this weird object, still not focusing on the field of light but on the object itself. The form itself looked like a firefly, it had slits in the middle and the top to allow the light to travel through, it also had openings on the ends to allow the sides to glow. When I tested it out, it was extremely bright and not so interesting. I was told at critique that it was too busy and I should focus on one thing.
Referring back to the cube project we had, I wanted to simplify it and just have a glow for my field of light. I was close to finishing the cube with the square edges, when one of the sides broke. Frustrated I wanted to keep it simple. I thought of a cube, with one slit to create a field of light. Now at this stage the question was, horizontal or vertical?
