  “Heaven on Earth”, Sculpture Center, Long Island City, 2001
A very bright light source has been installed behind already existing glass blocks at the Sculpture Center's courtyard. The viewer, standing in front of it, cannot tell where the light is coming from, or why there is light at all. The intensity of the light almost makes one squint. But still, one is attracted by the inexplicably shining window. The place behind the window is inaccessible, even though one develops a strong desire to go there.
