Revisit a time when the night sky was a mesmerizing symphony of stars, recalling the awe-inspiring moment of witnessing the Milky Way in all its glory. However, times have changed. Our relationship with light has rapidly evolved, and many have never seen the Milky Way. We have become disconnected from the night. As darkness falls, artificial lights illuminate our surroundings, leading to light pollution. Excessive exposure to artificial light at night has harmful consequences for our sight of the starry sky, nature, our health, and the economy. This zine guides you through this changing relationship with light, exploring the past, present, and glimpsing into the future. It offers a tangible and contemplative experience, inviting readers to dwell on the changing relationship with light, and make them aware of the negative impact of artificial light at night on various aspects of our lives.
