Artist's Description

Lumâ’ is the plural of lam’a: gleam, flash, sparkle, glitter. The choice of word was inspired by the title of a book, Kitab al-Lumâ’ by al-Sarrâj, usually translated in a vivid way as “Book of Flashes” or “Book of Scintillating Lights”. The 144 words, laser-cut in stainless steel, are depolished to reflect light better, as opposed to forms (as a mirror would). They are mounted at different angles to the surface, so that they don’t all reflect uniformly, but with the scintillating effect expressed by the word — particularly when the viewer is moving past the piece.
