embedding the light within the image while activating light within the space - image studies for commision at Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. 

Artist Sonja Thomsen brings her photographic way of seeing to this commissioned, multistory installation at Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. Mobilizing the properties of light and time, she has created an immersive environment that plays with the way light and shadow interact with the museum’s bold triangular architecture. This project emerged out of a desire to amplify MMoCA’s unique structural features, particularly the soaring glass icon, and as a way to explore public space, transverse the interior and exterior, and energize the museum’s relationship to the surrounding community and its visitors.
