Description:  A river of light cut across the floor of the gallery.  The water imagery seemed to breathe as it traversed between concave and convex -- destabilizing the viewer's relationship to the normally solid architecture;  some actually felt seasick. This was the first of many works that dealt with architectural dematerialization
