Ghost Windows

In the spaces once occupied by windows that have been both internal and external, hidden and revealed, Ghost Windows sheds an enigmatic light on the intriguing architectural history of King Street Supreme Court II.

 

Solid panels mimic the shape of six historic windows. As if cut-out from the walls, the panels tilt forward to hang slightly ajar.

 

From behind the panels a halo-like light rhythmically appears and disappears through the ‘cracks’, washing the surrounding surfaces with light. An almost imperceptibly slow lighting sequence increases and decreases in intensity as it spills and recedes across the heritage walls. Luminous auras infuse the court with a timeless rhythm - as if the walls themselves were breathing.
