I addressed the issue of light in my last blog. More is occuring in the motion of light and the movement of the eye. Light is reflected off the oval walls and brought down to the ground plane in the museum. This balances the space and unifies the white walls of the museum. The same is occuring in the display cabinet. The curvature of the top (light) is brought down to the ground plane through the reflection of door shelf curvature and reflected by the metallic kick plate and caster wheels. The eyes are led by the implied curve with the rhythm of stacking. Artificial light could be added under light block shelving. This would cause the artifact to glow much as the walls of the museum do.
