International Artist-In-Residence: Jeff Williams

Jeff Williams is a Texas artist who messes with building to reveal history. In Sunlight/Substratum from 2009, he redirected sunlight using mirrors through subterranean passages in the oldest building of the American Academy in Rome, where Galileo briefly worked. The piece was only viewable during a few minutes each day, when the sun was in position, thus contrasting centuries of the building’s existence with the fleeting moments of light.
