Using ultraviolet light emitting diodes and fluorescent paint, five
ordinary plastic milk jugs emit a sinister and mysterious glow.
To our eyes, a subtle fluorescent dayglo effect occurs; soft yellow
throughout the jug, with a faint purple tinge near the cap.
Unfortunately, this ultraviolet light does not document well on film
or digital cameras.
This piece was inspired by the near radioactive appearance of the residue
in a milk jug. The persistent yet futile "terror alert" states
since September 11 are somewhat related.
