To Adolf Luther the examination of light goes far beyond the treatment of an optical phenomenon. Luther approaches a fundamental question in art, the question regarding the view of nature and the world. "What I find behind the great debates of this century is a quest for more reality beyond the world of visible phenomena [.] Everything about the light belongs to a dimension other than the material world" (quote after Luther 34. Objekte-Kinetik, flyer Galerie Wendtorf + Swetec, 6 February - 31 March1976). Luther's works confronts us with the metaphysical phenomenon of light. This way he enables the observer to leave the material common sense world for a moment.
