Dividing Light Measuring Darkness

I am participating in this group exhibition at Curious Matter:

And of a sudden he is off again on his wanderings, passing from light to shadow, from shadow to light, unheedingly. –Samuel Beckett, Malone Dies

"Photons first appeared ten seconds after the Big Bang, signaling the first light. In the Judeo-Christian tradition God separated light from darkness on the first day of Creation. In Greek Mythology Nyx (night) with her consort Erebos (darkness) gave birth to Hemera (day). In all of these systems, from ancient myth to modern science, light comes out of darkness. Light and darkness are separate entities, but dependent upon one another. With “Dividing Light Measuring Darkness,” Curious Matter explores our diverse human responses to the benign physical properties of light and darkness."
