"For me, light is immaterial, and in my case, I prefer to make works that are instruments for light. My sculptures do have a kind of function: of making light visible." Heinz Mack in conversation with Stephanie Bailey, in: Exh. Cat., London, Ben Brown Fine Arts, Heinz Mack. Zero & More, 2015, p. 15

This work is in very good condition. The bottom and left edges of the frame are separating slightly from the plexiglass and some fine wood fibres appear to have collected along the lower inside edges.
