Bruce Nauman, 'Green Light Corridor', 1970 

To me the idea of a space overfit by a light has a lot of symbolisms and connotation. Green in particular creates a cinematic, almost a set-up and artificial appearance of the whole place. The idea of a corridor naturally constricts a viewer and intervenes with their personal space, which can create a really disturbing experience. I think, the bright lights at the top of the corridor will visually accentuate and emphasise a viewer as they go through it. It returns the work to the power of the space and vulnerability of the viewer, which is a powerful approach to use, whether as art or a part of a presentation.
