The individual, radiant supports make a surreal experience for the audience. We wonder: Is it a indication of distress? A lively show of one individual firework? Is light coming or going? Cooley's arrangements task us to make a story that describes the confusing existence of this ascending and descending light.
Regardless of what we decide for ourselves, the truth is that each light started by Cooley is an deliberate involvement. Through his activities, he uses a man made product to straight oppose the fascinating, strange beauty of characteristics. Cooley says :
"I am interested in our collective obsession with conquering, overpowering, and controlling nature, yet there is still both a longing and a fear towards nature. We are constantly reminded that despite our best efforts, it is nature that is ultimately in control."
