"Perpetual Response to Sound and Light (at HangarBicocca)" is conceived as a self-responsive structure in which each element—such as the sound of trains passing on rails near the exhibition complex and the architecture of the space— take on central roles, creating a connection between inside and outside. A white light installed outdoors in front of the exhibition building and timed according to noises coming from the nearby railway illuminates the Hangar's Shed and its visitors through a door that works as a transparent screen. Unlike in "White Museum", in this work the external influences of light and sound are to frame the internal structures, creating another image experience of this landscape.
