Cinematic Encounters with Light

I have been investigating cinematic references and still images taken from various movies such as Wake in Fright, The Last Wave and Blade Runner for example. I am interested in the scenes in between scenes if you like, the flashes of light, cinematic light, like a flickering strobe, car headlights, camera flash or blinding light. I have endeavoured to evoke a dreamlike state, a moment or feeling of uneasiness where there is a slippage between what is recoverable and understood but at the same time maintaining a feeling of familiarity, of an image seen before but where or how remains uncertain and out of reach.
