Mexican artist Francisco Ugarte grounds his multimedia, abstract works in the study of architecture and its effects, especially the role of light and geometry in constructing a viewer's perception of space. Sunlight I (2015), is a site-specific sculpture of eleven wooden pyramids that mark the movement of the sun. Every hour, between 7:15 am and 5:15 pm, one of the structures becomes perfectly aligned with the position of the sun, as to not cast a shadow. For Sala / Room "A" (2010), Ugarte covered an entire room in aluminum foil, a simple gesture aimed to capture the essential nature of a material and a place.
