Ethereal Columns explores the possibility of a colonnade without solidity, without weight to bear. The work is architectural: bold and imposing, it appears to carry its burden with grandeur. However, as the columns of light dance and flicker, the colonnade reveals itself as a structure without mass — and the columns transition into the ethereal.
