Dedicated to Donald Judd, one of the central figures of minimal art, this work is one of the first proposals made by Dan Flavin with fluorescent tubes. 

From this artwork emanates a light that removes all shadows and sense of volume, bathing the object and surrounding space in a sort of aura, to the extent that one can no longer tell where the artwork starts and finishes.
