Same Sun is a 14,000-square-foot abstract painting and shadow-casting sculpture installation. Three metal sculptures containing letters are installed along the top of the tank, casting shadows onto the painting below. The letter shadows come into alignment with painted letters on the tank during the summer solstice, revealing the complete phrase “Sol Omnibus Lucet,” Latin for “the sun shines upon us all.” Sofia Lacin and Hennessy Christophel of Studio Tutto designed and fabricated the work of art.
