Inside the space- and time-bending cube of Luc Piere's "Optical Spaces" at the Auckland Art Gallery. The placard inside the Gallery explains, "The plain exterior of Environment III's Formica box was constructed according to the dimensions of French architect Le Corbusier's Modulor, a system described by him as a 'range of harmonious measurements to suit the human scale.' The cube's mirrored floor and ceiling create an illusion of endless vertical space, of extension into infinity. To accompany the eerie sensation of standing in the cube, Peire commissioned Flemish composer of electronic music Louis De Meester to write a composition. Called Opus 297 (environment), De Meester's piece is an electronic 'tone picture' in a succession of glissando and sinus tones."
