Secret Sky

Secret Sky is the structural reworking of the barn to allow the sky to enter and pass through the building. By day, the barn is noticeable for its patterning and intricacy and a massive cut with light pouring through it. At night, the work glows from within acting as a lantern in the landscape and casting long shadows on the ground that surrounds it, giving it back to the sky.
