Changing Light at the Pulitzer

Time lapse QuickTime of changing light at the Pulitzer FoundationI've said it before, but I'll say it again. For my money no one does exhibition brochures, guides, and websites better than the Pulitzer Foundation.

For the current exhibition of Hiroshi Sugimoto photographs of its own Richard Serra torqued ellipse, the Pulizter has included a great time lapse QuickTime video of the exhibition space. (Follow this link into the Flash-heavy site and click on the icon for "time lapse photography.")

What makes a day in the life of an empty gallery so engaging? It's the light.

The video shows something that visitors to the space don't typically notice in the course of an hour spent there. The light moving through Tadao Ando's space brings out different characteristics in the art over the course of the day. Notice, especially, the change in character of the permanently installed Ellsworth Kelly piece behind the stairwell.
