Providing sacred spaces organised around an appreciation of a single natural element.
These 3 scenes show geometrically simple symmetric enclosures – voids.
In each of the scene, a spotlight of natural light is coming from an opening above and highlighting the figure. That creates a contrast between the figure and a ground, creating a strong focal point.
So, when a visitor enters a large silent space, his eyes are drawn to a single small figure. Strong contrast between figure and the ground creates a monumentalising effect of an object, embodying dignity and strength of a viewer.
