The Oculus

The eye. A circular hole in the dome of the Pantheon of Rome, twenty-seven feet wide. What these people had was a flair for drama. There was art in everything they did. What do we have here that will stand the test of so much time? Light becomes a participant in these places, an essential character. The eye catches and directs this light ever reminding us we are slaves of the sun.
