Lorenza Panero’s The Garden is a 13-piece exhibit that utilizes photography, luminography and spatial sequencing to create a fully immersive experience in the Little House. The exhibits’ focal point is Ribera Luminosa (Luminous River), a striking floor piece made with tempered glass sides supported via steel pegs, illuminated from below, guiding visitors on an emotional journey through The Garden in which each image contributes to the full story.

Panero’s principal medium is light, constructing and rebuilding what is real and imaginary. Lorenza developed the luminography technique in a photography dark room earlier in her career in which images are captured on photographic paper by manipulating, diffracting and interrupting the flow of light from an enlarger. There is no camera, negative, or computer correction of the images: they are direct impressions of a sequence of events that only exists as recorded on the photographic paper. Lorenza utilizes this innovative technique throughout her works in The Garden as this method creates immediate, personal imagery - decreasing the distance between the artist and the public.
