Light Composition was presented at the Neue Galerie at Documenta 8 1977 in Kassel, Germany. Light and slow movement of her body creates shadow fields in a theatrical space. Manipulating temporal perception through her studied movements and the gradual changes in light, Hoover herself becomes the site of a luminous, moving sculpture.
