To Be Enlightened, You Pull the Switch // Dan Flavin (NYT)
http://nytimes.com/2004/10/01/arts/design/01KIMM.html

	'Flavin's idea was to make art out of off-the-rack industrial light  
fixtures. A few sizes. A handful of colors. Just follow his  
instructions.' .... "...If you flipped off the electric switch they  
effectively stopped being art." .... '...Fluorescents act differently  
than colored pigments, he learned. Green paint mixed with red paint  
produces mud, but green light beside red light casts a white light. The  
more color you add, the whiter it gets. Flavin's blushing homage to  
Matisse, consisting of parallel upright tubes of pink, yellow, blue and  
green  two warms, two cools, a combination he often exploited   
creates a blast of white in the stairwell of the retrospective. It's a  
lesson in light.'
