The exhibition studies the triangulation of experience achieved through:

The work
The architectural space
The viewer

The title “Lighght” is a poem by minimalist poet Aram Saroyan. The pieces have been selected in compliance with the following statements:

(Fig.1)   The space acts as a placeholder
(Fig.2)   The architecture of the space dictates the situation of the work
(Fig.3)   The work acknowledges the proportions and attributes of the space
(Fig.4)   The work creates its own space
(Fig.5)   The structure is intrinsic to the work
(Fig.6)   The work explores the notion of space
(Fig.7)   The viewer is taking part in the work
(Fig.8)   The work achieves its completion through the physical experience of the viewer
