Vince, "Dark Light" immediately recalled my reading of some science novels by author Harry Turtledove. because "dark light" was used another name for radar used by aliens.

Dear Vince

when i read the word dark light the first thing that comes in my mind is that how can light be dark. Light is light though shades are produced due to the objects in the environment that either reflect ,refract or absorb light.
when i was a student one of my friends did a thesis on light cuz his hobby was photography. and he wanted to design an artist's commune. as light is a very important factor in an artists life.
he studied about light first and then the shadows or as in your words i think darkness.
I hope you understood my point.

Vince, To be honest "dark light" does not resonate with me, mainly because the latest trendy (popular culture) phrase is "the dark side" as though the dark side is of more interest and value than the light side.

In fact, it is the interplay of light and dark (Chiaroscuro)that is of aesthetic interest because the space between light and dark has an infinite of possibilities.

according to me "dark light" might give me oppurtunity to explore light and darkness in terms of solids or voids of the building mass.
another perfect way might be the interior scheme of the building where i might play with contrasting colours or dark and light elements, furniture etc according to the usage of the space etc. !! i will think more and let u know beyond this :)

there was a vogue in morocco to paint room with black. I never understood the ambiance they wanted to creat. I think we can play on the tone of colors when we put weak lighting. I think if we put dark finish and weak light it can be a different attitude toward light. it is all about what tone you would like to have and what that space is for. may be :)
