Objects of undisclosed ritual purpose exist in the void of an inverted spotlight. The black shape also suggests the interior of the eye, or the shape of a stage - a structure whose purpose is to present carefully choreographed images to the eye. The objects seem to have taken sides, urging the viewer to entertain contrast and comparison.
