What is it about?
The paper is about light as a perceptual experience. As a peculiar perceptual presence, light can be experienced as luminosity, as environmental brightness, and as surface brightness (the so-called interplay between light and shadow). The paper illustrates phenomena and experiments in relation to such experiences.

Why is it important?
Light is a universal archetype, a primordial phenomenal experience that has ever since conditioned mankind's understanding and representation of the world, becoming a metaphor for fundamental concepts. As such, the perceptual experience of light is deeply rooted in cultural heritages around the world. In this paper I show and address phenomena that aid our understanding of light perception.
