"Ruptures in Running Bond transforms the existing apertures in the brick walls of the Mills Gallery at the Boston Center for the Arts into a serious of modulated penetrations which transform the ‘southern exposure’ of the building into a series of ‘light vectors’, pulling the natural light through the wall and into the space during the day and drawing artificial light out of the gallery and into the city at night." He used thermoplastic vacuum forming to mold flat plastic sheets into light-grabbing tubes that illuminate the interior of the gallery.
