Through analyzing the movement of water, one can notice patterns forming. From there, forms simulating the behavior of water can be generated.
While visiting Chicago, one must see the Loyola University Art Museum. As the Viewer enters the gallery, they notice that the art is contained on bright red walls. The docent stated that they were painted red because the art in the medieval time period was viewed in candlelight. The mixture of red walls and the yellow-white light reenact the warm essence of a candle's glow. The glow was meant to depict to the viewer what it was like to view the piece of artwork in the time period that it was created.
To reinforce the idea of stark contrast between water and fire, the fixture uses rigid shapes assembled to portray a flowing form.
This light fixture was designed with intentions to create the essence and environment needed to properly view medieval art pieces.
