In this piece, Mendez Blake elaborates on the symbol of the lighthouse; as pictured in the novel by Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse (1927).; Here, the entity of the lighthouse, which has a symbolic rather that; architectonical meaning even in the novel, is given a body and is; subtracted from the blurry, imaginary dimension of the novel. Still,; it remains a rather obscure object: a tiny, black architecture that; concretizes a fictional space and, at the same time, stays far from; being a realistic depiction. Rather, this object gives way to new; possible interpretations and visualization of the emblematic figure; of lighthouse.
