The light seems to have passed through the ceiling; it creates a new intangible space. The artificial light emitted by the fluorescent tubes appears alternately in turquoise and scarlet. These two colours are complementary, and create the feeling that the ceiling has detached itself and floats in mid-air. Visitors experience this floating sensation as a feeling that the body has been made weightless in the room. This light frees the space and creates a timeless place.
