Glasgow, Scotland –
Our relationship with the night time is at best ambivalent and at some basic atavistic level most troubling. Night is often associated with danger and evil, because of the psychological connection of night’s all-encompassing darkness to the fear of the unknown and darkness’s obstruction of a major sensory system (the sense of sight). Night time is naturally associated with the vulnerability and danger for survival. Criminals, animals, and other potential dangers can be concealed by darkness. Midnight has a particular importance in human imagination and culture.
