A spatial sequence unfolds and is revealed over time. It is perceived through motion, movement channeled through the space with light and form. The layering and overlapping of surface creates a relationship of light and dark between preceding and receding forms. Light gives depth to this space and allows mass to convey light and dark. It is the mass, growing from the inside surface, that shapes the voids and frames the solids of the following space; solids which are transparent and are of void and light. Individual spatial configurations overlap to compose a whole, on experience of form orchestrated by light and light's darkness.
