The textile installation The Right to the Sunlight (2023) by Slovenian artist Teja Šter. While creating the artwork in the basement of the Kranj City Hall, the author explored her feelings of light deprivation in her daily workspace during the winter season. The limited view of the sky from the inner courtyard feels constricting yet hopeful. This led her to further investigate reflections that occur in the narrow streets of the old town centre in Kranj. They manifest in direct mirrored forms of windows and distorted layered composite shapes, together creating intriguing patterns on the facades.
