Light is the most fascinating of all aspects and elements of our natural world. It gives life, it sustains, it powers, and it propels us onward. It captivates, it creates, and yet we take this complex entity for granted. As children we are enraptured by the warmth and blaze of a summer sun, but overtime we lose interest for this divinely created source of life, and what was once a source of illumination to our imaginations becomes simply the mundane.
But what happens when our understanding of light, and how it speaks to our hearts and minds is reimagined? How does light become something new entirely, that allows us to look beyond what is easily seen to something that we have not considered before? How can light create a sense of sacred space, or even just that; the sacred?
This is a small glimpse into this story of sacred light, and the process of developing such sacred space through the marriage of art and faith. We are beyond eager to continue to document and tell this story with Brandes upon his return to the states later this coming winter, and to unveil our documentary on his process and installation fall of next year.
