In yellow light

The room is filled with rows of wooden desks with built-in desk, tan-hued wood against tan floor boards, the bright, cold winter light without paling the browns of buildings without into tan as well. The soothing hum of fan insulates the room from noise, a cocoon of sound.

At the front, my words are projected faintly onto a yellow-saturated screen, colors wan in the daffodil-tinted onslaught. I can't find any way to effetively alter the screen's jaundiced pallor, and it renders colored photographs sickly and indistinct. But the gist is there - the outline of hilltops or the burdened twist of spine - and magnifying details helps for image if not shade. My words are writ large here in yellow light, where I alone can see them.

Do you have time to ask for a different projector? It sounds like the bulb is going.

For better or worse, my tech rehearsal room isn't the same classroom as the one I'll be in for my defense - that projector might well have different issues. It's good to know what might be wrong with it though. I fiddled around with display calibrations and nothing had any real effect on the projection.

So while yes, I have time to ask for a different projector, I don't yet know what problems the actual projector has - if any.

Light
The light is jealous of your brilliance, which outshines it.

Boy, that sounds really cheesy. Too bad its true, though.
