The artists' second experimental Light Work was staged to commemorate the 500-year anniversary of the “Encounter of two Worlds”, the title of an important exhbition held at the Museum of Mankind, dedicated to the discovery of South American culture. Rives des Amériques (Shores of the Americas) preceeded Lucy + Jorges' seminal light expedition across Inca heritage sites in Peru in 1992 - Imprints on the Andes.
