Shadow is mystery and light is clarity. Shadow conceals, light reveals. To know what to reveal and what to conceal, and in what degrees to do this, is all there is to art.

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968, dir. Stanley Kubrick)

“Essentially the film is a mythological statement. Its meaning has to be found on a sort of visceral, psychological level rather than in a specific literal examination.”

-Kubrick (1968, NY Times)
