Story and details
When morning starlight is clouded in my village road, it is a choice between seeing ahead and gazing at the night sky much further up.
One of the most visual characteristics of our nightlife is a reddish-grey layer hovering over our inhabited areas.
As the lamp posts illuminate patches of the road you're forced to play puzzle and imagine the pieces the light can't reach. Yet it is unavoidable if we continue living life the way we do, human life has become dependent on it. So much so that this is the main state I get to see my street during the week, whether in the early morning or early evening.
Street lighting is not perfect, but it is intuitive. It leaves a right amount of clues, perspective lines pointing the direction of where street lights can't quite reach. Maybe architecture will see a shift focusing on nighttime architecture as well as in daylight. This could be an environmental shift aiming to protect animal nightlife alongside taking into consideration our demanding lifestyle by improving street light design and collaborating with the professionals whose sector it may impact.
