In Gravity of Light, an immersive installation by acclaimed contemporary artists Doug
and Mike Starn at the Holy Cross Church in Mount Adams, an arc light is the sole illumination.
Central to this off-site installation at the Mount Adams Monastery is an open arc lamp, which
burns like a candle with the brilliance and precise bright light that mimics the sun. Surrounding
the arc light are artworks from five intertwined photographic bodies of work at a monumental
scale whose subjects tell the story of how light is of dual character; it has power to both give
life and to destroy it. Towering over Gravity of Light is an image of the eighth-century Buddhist
monk Ganjin who, though blind, saw that black is filled with light: illumination comes from

Equal parts sculpture, scientific experiment, and photography, Gravity of Light suspends
the viewer in a chamber of sensorial and experiential discovery. Gravity of Light shows us we
are all conductors: absorbers and emitters of the universe’s energy.
