Testing the physical and phenomenal limitations of various types of Acyclic through surface scoring as a light threshold, operable connections to form structure, and color manipulation to transform light coming through various light sources and material colors.
Located within the Huckabee Student lounge storage room of the College of Architecture building, is an interesting location for its double window lighting configuration. The spatial properties allowed the installation to become the manipulator of the existing west sunset of the exterior window and artificial lighting to the interior stair window. This site is also viewable from the adjacent street, Texas Tech parkway.
