Afrum I (White)(1967)

‘…groundbreaking series of works exploring the ways light can manipulate the perception of space, grouping them into broad categories based on similarities in structure and perceptual effects. ‘- Gugghenheim’

Visitors encounter a glowing cube floating in the corner of a room; what first appears to be a solid object resolves upon closer inspection into simple planes of light.

A striking illusion made purely out of flat projection. I certainly find this piece intriguing and how artificial light can make something appear so real.
