Louis Kahn writes in his booklet 'Light is the Theme' about his design of the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas.

'No space, architecturally, is a space unless it has natural light.'

Silence to Light
Light to Silence
The threshold of their crossing
is the Singularity
is Inspiration
(Where the desire to express meets the possible)
is the Sanctuary of Art
is the Treasury of the Shadows
(Material casts shadows shadows belong tot light)

As a visual artist working with light I am inspired by the architecture of Louis Kahn
