"Light is more than watts and footcandles; Light is metaphor."
One of my favorite scenes in TV history.
(For context, this scene took place during the time in Alaska when it's dark 24/7 and the lack of daylight was starting to wear people down.)
Chris-in-the-morning's art projects were always bizarrely inspiring and in retrospect I know that they influenced my own work. In fact, a few of my early installation pieces (back when I did those) were inspired by him.
Northern Exposure was a great show, it's a shame so few people my age watched it.
This scene never fails to make me happy. :)
