Sweet Light  09:00 1977
Viola has referred to Sweet Light and other tapes from this period as "songs"-personal lyrical statements. Articulated through precise editing, Sweet Light incorporates symbolic imagery, changes of scale, and a radically mobile camera suggesting shifting points of view. The tape is grounded in common references to  illumination-incandescent lamp light, daylight, flashlight, firelight-that serve as metaphors for artistic inspiration. Viola's access to sound facilities at the ZBS studio in Fort Edward, New York, and to video post-production at the TV Lab at WNET, New York allowed him to exercise precise and rhythmic flexibility in editing this tape.
