To acquire or deserve as a result of effort or action is to earn. This piece questions what I value. Light and its ubiquitous state has adopted a misconception of being given. I allow the viewer to disperse this luxury that I remove from my own control. The neons illuminate a warm gold glow as symbolism of its worth. The motion of the opening works as an extension of how much is earned. The cardboard box suggests solitude and vulnerability through its crushed facade and compromised structure.

Neons in parallel; the digital output turns on when the photocell reads darkness according on the closeness of the viewer
Motor; the motor turns on and reacts with one of its 3 functions when the photocell reads the light value
the value of the photocell reads and stores the values of light pre-determined through set values from serial print readings for each of the 3 functions of the sunroof and on and off for the neons.
if (the value of the light is slightly dimmer than its brightest value then the first function of the sunroof turns on)
if (the value of the light is slightly dimmer than the above value then the second function of the sunroof begins and the first sunroof function ends)
if (the value of the light is at its dimmest value that has been pre determined than the third function of the sunroof begins and the second sunroof function ends and the neons turn on until light reaches is detected enough to reverse as the viewer walks away)
