"YW (Why war? Why Dubya?)
Good question. A slew of good, bad and ugly, but not indifferent, works by some 50 artists cram the walls, dangle from the ceiling, and cling to pillars, making a case for creative chaos as an antidote to destruction. Some, such as Flash Light's peace sign, stand out."

2004 The Village Voice, "Voice Choices," by Kim Levin, (Vol. XLIX No. 38, Sept 22-28, p. 88-89)

". . . A strong thread in the show is American fear of American power, exemplified in one interactive video installation by a New York artist using the 'spiritual name' Flash Light. In his work, 'I am Terrified of the PATRIOT Act,' a video screen shows, in very small print, statements of his fears about the loss of free expression. But as the viewer approaches the screen they disappear, to be replaced by an American flag." View work.

". . . Flash Light has been experimenting with light art since the early 1970s. He employs the use of LED lights and computer technology to represent religious figures in ancient Egyptian history and bring them to life physically and symbolically through multi-dimensional animation. His reference to ancient themes and iconography often mirror comtemporary troubles that 'divide the world today'. . ." View work.
