    The gallery is filled with water in order to make artificial rain and fog. The stroboscopic afterglow effect makes it appear as if particles of light are floating throughout the entire gallery. In the center is a path that  disappears into the water, allowing visitors to experience walking through these floating light particles. Thanks to the lighting, the fog takes on a more material appearance, rendering the border between phenomenon and material, and light and darkness, more ambiguous. <D.W>
