Abstract: The act of creation is a privileged moment at the time of its artistic and architectural process. It is, among other things, the time and place for imagination, for experimentation with matter, for conceptual development and for the construction of what is perceived. It is a moment of enthusiasm and effervescence when we instinctively manipulate as well as conceive intellectually. As for the «Art of space», multiple factors are to be considered from the origin of its process such as, shapes, colours, sizes and positioning. Beyond each of these parameters, space, scene of its multiple interactions, becomes a creation in itself. This research particularly leans on the spatial and perceptual relation between objects and light, two elements completing and modifying each other in various ways, whereas its esthetic potential is obvious. It suggests the resetting of the creative process by direct and simple manipulations with matter, through miniature tryouts and photographic images, two familiar media of architectural practice. These minimal interventions simultaneously present a richness in spatial relations as well as information on luminous surroundings. The research proposes the circumscription of a vocabulary of the main parameters linking objects with light, leading to the elaboration of a method of creation and analysis to assist architects and artists in their creative explorations. The theoretical framework releases notions, principles and terms related to space, form, light and perception, assisting in the construction of physical models to visualize and control aspects of the invention. An exploration of a series of parameters of objects and lighting complete the research in order to stimulate the imagination and creativity in architecture.
