“This igloo divides itself into light and dark, day and night. It stands in a relation to the universe with its hemispheric form and a marked reaction to light. Space is filled with light, but is still the darkest night. And since we don’t see light as such, we also don’t see the space…” (Urs Raussmüller)
Christel Sauer’s text in this richly illustrated publication gives insight into this unique igloo by Mario Merz created from glass, gold leaf and slate plates.
