Interior Dome (National Gallery of Art, Washington DC)

The light pouring down from this dome always leaves me wondering how the hole keeps the rain from falling in. There is that perfect balance of air pressures inside and out, a counterintuitive equilibrium that keeps the inside of the museum dry despite whatever storms crash on the roof. The light at the center, and the blocks and lines streaming from it, look to me like mosaic sunshine. Medium: Film
