The stain glass windows of an abandoned chapel at Building 9 are the inspiration behind this installation: 300 linear feet of light and colors through windows, along a "C" shaped court yard. At dawn, inside the chapel, the colors of the stain glass windows mute, while outside, the lights and colors of the installation become radiant. The court yard is covered by a red carpet made of natural pine needles, scent from the carpet is released by viewers approaching the terrace to view the exhibition.
