through the timber exoskeleton that shades the angled glass membrane on the west side of the atrium, casting a shimmering pattern of striated shadows around the tall nave-like space.
At night, the studio is transformed into a softly luminous box as light percolates
through an external carapace of rusted woven wire panels that are kinked and cranked like powerfully rippling muscles.
Although the study makes "a very valuable contribution," says Peter Ravenscroft of Cambridge, England, he's not convinced that arsenic enters aquifers only when surface water percolates
in through long cuts incised in the roof plane, bouncing and reflecting down into the tall space.
Reddish spots and shallow pits that pepper the surface of Jupiter's moon Europa may mark regions where warmer and less dense ice, possibly from an ocean buffed deep beneath the moon's frigid surface, percolates
to the surface.
These capture small chasms of light which cast changing reflections and pockets of intense luminosity through the spaces inside, echoing the way in which light percolates
brilliantly through the thick walls of Spanish churches.
Sea water percolates
up through the ice to flood the surface and form the boils observed by Golden.
At night, light percolates
out through the slatted sides and bridge deck, emphasizing a sense of movement.
The seafloor has such an extreme incline because groundwater percolates
down to the base of the continental slope and erodes the rock there, causing collapse at the bottom.
