This past year, Vito Acconci has been our Master advisor in the Brooklyn College MFA program.  His words have guided us to perceive with new eyes and ears, open thoughts and minds.

 

Big SMALL Works is a sampling of our most recent work.

 

“Start thinking-about/dreaming-of/designing/making a light (or lighting): start by thinking of light as a point of light, a dot of light…But, as long as the light remains a dot, a point, a mark, then the light can’t go anywhere, it’s only a point-in-itself, it’s enclosed in itself, it’s stopped by itself…In order for the light to light, to be lighting, to be light itself, to make illumination, to give out light, it has to go out of itself, it has to throw light, like throwing one’s voice…So make a light that refuses to stay stuck in itself, make a point of light that becomes a line of light -- a point of light that stretches from here to there, that spreads from here to elsewhere -- a point of light that produces, that results in, a ray of light, a channel of light, a beam of light, a volume of light…Don’t stop now, don’t stop where you are: bring your eyelids down, start to close your eyes, your eyelids are quivering, your vision blurs -- in your mind’s eye, or maybe from under your eyelids, the point of light has deformed into a blur of light, a haze of light, an ooze of light, a fog of light…”

 

— Vito Acconci
