about

Eigengrau (German: "intrinsic gray"), also called Eigenlicht ("intrinsic light"), dark light, or brain gray, is the color seen by the eye in perfect darkness. Even in the absence of light, some action potentials are still sent along the optic nerve, causing the sensation of a uniform dark gray color.

This is an album about the light we only see once we find ourselves in our darkest places.

Thank you Lesley, Heather, Nathan, John, Spencer, Tyler, Todd, and all the other amazing people who have all helped me so far along.

Thank you Kyle for the amazing art.
