I think so.
Dan Flavin created art work with fluorescent lights. Not just as sculptures, but also engaged the walls ceilings, floors, and other architectural elements.
Everyone has to start somewhere. Flavin's first exhibit on his own was in 1961 with the series called icons. Icons was just a series of squares that used light sources. His style progressed to what it is today. Well, not today, but in his day. Flavin died in 1996. Even though he is gone, his work will be respected forever. His apprentices proceed to put his work on exhibit. They say his work is like a language, to which they are the translators. This way his work will live on.
The simplicity of Flavin's work intrigues me. Being a fan of clean lines, his work draws my attention. Even though the process of his work is definitely a hard process, it is easy to look at. It makes me wonder how he created it, and thinking how can I create it?
So what is light? If Flavin were to answer that question he would say art. I would say something that illuminates an area. So what is light for you?
Go make your own light.
