concept of light as a narrative element is elaborated in Andrea Dezsö's The
day we changed our lives forever- intimate papercuts, tunnel books made from
three layers of cut paper. In a dark room, each little environment, alive
with fantastical and whimsical creatures, sits on a small shelf at eye level.
Peeking into these worlds from the sides are the most influential characters:
tiny red, green and blue LED lights that correspond to three sliding knobs
on the wall. Shifting the balance of light from blue to green changes the
energies and intentions of conversing devils, whispering rabbits, dancing
pixies, perching grasshoppers; the creatures live in a╩tenuous balance between
cute and sinister according to the behaviors of red, green and blue. Here,
the narratives are open-ended; we create the story as we the turn the knob. –Chloe Hawkins:Zero to Superhero, NY Arts Magazine 2005/09
