For the exhibition Rooms to Let in Thessaloniki, Greece, a room was entirely transformed into a light box with the vision of the city’s night landscape. All the surfaces of the room were painted entirely black in order to give the public the impression of floating in space. The view of the city, from the room, was re-created on a wooden light box with small holes, which were resembling the lights of the urban landscape. Once the people were inside the room, they were contemplating the view of the city from an interior space.
