The small boxes are experiments on “inner light”. It seems that it’s mostly about saturation. The dark blue for example glows out from the black, not because the black is dark but because it is unsaturated. The red/purple glows against the lighter neutral grey (bottom second from right) because the red/purple is more saturated.
