And as a set, it is a lived space, frequented by the stories that took place there over the course of time, and bears traces of those spatial narratives. The ﬁrst set of these memories is inscribed on the surface of the walls, in the very architecture framing the space of the installation, providing both access and egress. The evocative concrete architectures we described standing at the entrance and exit are, in fact, stand-ins for a construction of the past.

Light Space, from Cinema to Art Installation Thinking of modern views like the ones Le Corbusier helped to shape in relation to promenades, one travels the contact zone between the architectural journey enacted in ﬁlm and the one mapped out in the art gallery.
