About Environment Lighting
Environment Lighting is a quick Flash project to control different art layers in various ways. Though conceptually simple, the project had some interesting logic to work out to make all the rendered art appear as it should.

One of the most entertaining parts of this project for me is when I show it to friends, family, and colleagues for the first time, especially when I'm on the phone with them instead of in person. We'll be talking about the project, and then there will be a lengthy pause, during which no one will speak. Eventually, I'll interject, "You're still playing with the lights, aren't you?" Everyone always enthusiastically answers, "Yes!" It's fascinating to me how a few simple combinations of lights in an abstract space can hold people's attention like this.
