On March 8, 2012, students from our Advanced 3 course visited the Museum of Cycladic Art. They had the chance to see the permanent collections, but mainly the photography exhibition “Beyond White” by Eugenie Coumantaros.
Through the exhibition 'Beyond White' our students were called upon to recollect their own experiences while viewing Aegean chapels in a new light. They were impressed by white chapels. temples, sacred spaces, shadows on white, and colored light. They left with an appreciation of how shifts in angle and choices of lens balance light and shadow so that simple architectural forms end up conversing with the sea, sky, and air.
