|In the first room, he has stacked a spiral of canvases, each one painted several times, with the various layers dripping over the sides of the canvas. The final layer is painted blue. Some canvases bear a portion of the image of a photographic nude. Stacked in the spiral, the overlapping canvases form three complete figures, each of which appears to rise. || |
| ||In the second room, a rotating mirrored ball reflects off a light set into the floor, covering the walls with moving circles of lights.|
A light box in the ceiling is constructed around the mirrored ball. It is built to illuminate a transparency of a rising figure.
