    shine a light on

    Lydon isn’t advocating an end to planning but encourages more short-term doing, experimenting, testing (which can be a far more satisfying alternative to waiting for projects to pass). While this may not directly change existing codes or zoning regulations, that’s O.K. because, as Lydon explains, the practices employed “shine a direct light on old ways of thinking, old policies that are in place.”

    This is the same passage I asked about yesterday, but I overlooked one more problem in it. It's quite different from the last one, so I decided to open up a new thread for it.

    What does shine a direct light here mean exactly? Expose? Improve? Reflect?

    Thanks!
