From Concarneau, France, Jessica Spira-Goldring's projections in the Light Silo, together with Otto Piene's Light Ballet are a Fata Morgana floating between presence and absence. Jessica says of her quarantine collages, "I made [them] during the initial weeks of the confinement period in France. The collaging process evolved from a series of underwater, skyscape, moonscape, and train collages that I glued together with my son during morning home-preschooling hours....For me, the collages are remnants of a time of quiet contemplation just before the electric spirit of transformation took to the streets.
