2011 Writing with Light (Milano)

That day I had no idea I would attempt to write with light.

It happened by chance while I was visiting the construction site of a building we were renovating. Some glazed elements on the scaffolfing reflected sunlight on the building on the opposite side of the street creating a bizarre effect. I had never noticed it before, because it only happened for a short time at a definite hour of the day.

Using materials available on site, I immediately had the blacksmith prepare some more or less invented fonts and here is the result.

I never had an opportunity to do better: construction was almost finished and besides, just in a couple of days later, the sun was already too low to illuminate the facade and the metal letters.
