Michael Somoroff: Illumination I

Michael Somoroff's installation Illumination I defies easy categorization. Installed with its open side facing east, toward the rising sun, Illumination I stands over 20 feet high and weighs more than 22,000 pounds. Inspired by both spirituality and politics, Somoroff's work reveals its relationship to the phenomenon of light and the artist’s interest in sacred architecture.
