When we enter a museum, most of us will notice the wide space. Among the grandest structures in our society, museums offer visitors a chance to step into broad expanses – architectural feats that we rarely meet otherwise in daily life.

What David Behar Perahia notices is the light. For the past decade, Behar Perahia, an acclaimed architect and artist, has researched natural light and its qualities. This month, he will close the “Light-Space Pulsations” exhibition, which has been open since late January at the Mishkan Museum of Art in Ein Harod. The show, which brought a dream of Behar Perahia’s to life, inhabited the palatial spaces of the museum with a site- and light-specific project.
