Mack thus experimented with the effects of the appearance of his sculptures in space and their perception by the viewer. The light reflections in Crown of Light confer a sense of perpetual movement whose intensity changes according to the position of the light source and the viewers position. The reflections of this constant movement of light and shade create ephemeral 'drawings' onto nearby walls and surfaces.
Mack's works have the power to change the physical perception of the viewer and his or her interaction with the surrounding space. In this sense, rather than creating a mere optical illusion, Mack set out to create a work of art that inhabits and creates its own reality. 'There is a certain similarity to what happens in nature in the work, but it’s not comparable with nature: It’s not an illusion of nature: it has its own reality'. (Quoted in Heinz Mack: Zero and more, Ben Brown Fine Arts exhibition catalogue, 2015, p. 15).
