|Galería Alonso Garcés|
The Lightcatchers are a series of tubes or beams of light that connects the windows of the gallery.
The Lightcatchers material is surgical fabric, which is normally used for surgical face masks and gowns. This textile filters light properly. Both ends of the beams are brighter, while the middle gradually dims.
The top glasses of the pointed arch windows were removed to allow the wind to pass through the Lightcatchers and generate a movement in the fabric. The light beams filter the light, the wind, the pollution and also lets one experience the cold from the outside.
The last Lightcatcher hangs at the back of the space. This element lies on the floor as there is no window on the opposite side. There never was. With no window on this wall, there is no light, and therefore no structure, the form falls directly on the floor.
