Solar Day
 is a sculptural installation by Torkwase Dyson addressing the intersection of and mutual relationship between sunlight, architecture, space, liminality, time and the body. Site-specifically located inside a mildly sunlit room, Dyson experiments with architecture as a technology to sculpt and compose sunlight for 20 solar days. Each sculptural element is engineered using minimal tectonic forms pulling daylight deeper into the interior space increasing luminosity and evoking serenity and contemplation.
