Glowback Thursday: A look back at the night that the lights went out in Fairlington

I actually did end up creating that box of light. I even made a lightbox base for it (but I need to replace the batteres). Two years ago, after I had just finished putting up my 18th and final Christmas lights display, I had the honor of being interviewed by the incredibly talented Jessica Carpenter  for a senior-year project she was working on at the Corcoran College of Art.

The result was this really cool video which I found to be a wonderful tribute to a simple hobby of mine that spun wildly out of control.

What I like most about the video is that she took 20 minutes of my at times incoherent rambling and turned it into a story with a surprise ending. She's really very talented.

Merry Christmas, y'all!
