These three custom light box works were commissioned for an Art-in-Buildings project at the Dufferin Liberty Centre. This exhibit referenced the history of the centre beginning with its construction in 1908 by Sunbeam General Electric to manufacture, among other items, light bulbs. Taking the light bulb factory as a jumping off point, the artists included in this exhibion investigate the malleable properties of light whether through reflecting, refraction, capturing light with photography or depicting it with paint.

Bauer, known for her exploration of photography about photographic processes, depicts vintage flashbulbs used in early flash photography. Displayed in custom light boxes, the images create a self-referential circuit that echos the flashbulbs' original function.
