Darkness with Shards of Light
MetadataShow full item record
Realities of the world are often difficult to face. We dream of a world devoid of social ills. In the notion of 'utopia', we imagine such an environment - sparkling and full of light, but this perfect world is a delusion. It fails to address the darker, more unpredictable reality - one of the imperfections, transitions, and moments of enlightenment, an existence constantly becoming. Architecture can frame this side of existence. Architectural space can find its origin in the creation of experience, focusing to engage the senses to create an experience. In this thesis, the experience is developed in the intertwined refrains of art, architecture, and sculpture. It frames through architecture, an effect drawn from the interplay of light, matter, and space. It is drawn from experiments, the works of Louis Kahn and Tadao Ando, from paintings of Caravaggio and the sculptures of Henry Moore, telling the story of life, the story of darkness, of shadows, of flesh and hope.
