Light art is a strange medium. You don't see other artists creating exclusively in pitch-black conditions. Graff writers, maybe - but even they have street lamps for some visibility.

I was listening to the radio the other day and there was a story about a steel guitar player that liked to play in complete darkness because he thought it heightened his senses - let him play better.

I feel the same is true with light art - I think that your mind becomes sharp and receptive because it doesn't have to focus on visual stimuli - it changes focus.
