Kris Ruhs Tunnel light

14th april 2004 - 2nd may 2004

This exhibition continues Ruhs’ explorations of the relationships between space and object; time and transition. Here he brings awareness not only to the space in which is the object, the gallery, and the object itself, the tunnel, but also to the light.
The installation is called Tunnel of Light. The tunnel itself is a circle into which you enter and begin your “circumambulation”, reminding of the courtyards of the monasteries used for contemplation. It is about 8 meters in diameter and rests within a square in the gallery that is also about 8 by 8 meters. Tunnel Light is the expression of one of the oldest mathematical mysteries, squaring the circle, and continues to express Ruhs’ fascination with tethering the idea of his works firmly in their environments and watching them grow together.
The journey in the tunnel begins with the light from outside piercing its walls in such a way so that the way becomes lighter as we pass through it. The complexity of the relationship between the circle and the square, these two simple elements, is demonstrated by the changing light illuminating the journey through them.
