a void is light....

well a void can be darkness also,it depends on psychological state and your perceptive preferences

let us take an example:
if you were inside your home and you were waiting for the dawn and looking at your window then (a void) will represent light.if we reverse the case (by chanching the element of time) and you
were waiting for sunset then your same architectural void(the window) will enhance darkness
on the other hand if you ask a group of people what a( a cave,a well,a deep pit,a tunnel) represent for them,i suppose darkness will be the direct answer
from the anciency of mythology and religion (hades)and(sheol),were two
two ultimate voids that represented DARKNESS,jumping into the future to astronomy & cosmology ,our giant universe is just an infinit (DARK) negative space and even when giant stars dies it creates what is known by BLACK HOLES...

so were is the trick then!

if we envoke the consecutive oscillation, periodic plays ,dualism and antagonism of solids and voids ,light and darkness,night and mornings...
the system ,the cycle,life and death then
rebirth ,re-carnation or resurrection then we can understand the dualistic nature of architecture voids

a void is light(INCOMPLETE)!

we can not evaluate the (LIGHT)in an architectural void if we didn't experience the (DARKNESS) in the same void initially.....

for me a void envoke both light and darkness periodically....
