"Representing the urban night light in the architectural space creates the new experience to the audiences. The colorful of Bangkok night light is just a skin of the live society. Pink, which is being used to present the illusion, fascination, and passion in the night society, works differently with light under the point of views, positions, and light levels. Black light is brought to stimulate human color perception and continue inspire the feelings and imaginations. For the lighting installation, the lighting, emerged to the architecture, emphasizes the architectural details and environmentally affect to the people’s visions in the space. In term of architectural space, windows are standing for the eyes which connect the views outside to the inside. The views from the windows tell the stories to the audience without interrupting the interior space."
