Refraction House, 1994
16 1000-watt spotlights, 3 scaffolds, each 5 x 3 m
The synagogue in Stommeln the Lower Rhine can barely be seen from the main street and is set back in a courtyard. For a period of eight weeks, the building was closed and lit from the inside with intense light, so that the building illuminated the surrounding area like a light sculpture, becoming a symbol that could be seen from afar.
