Abstract [en]

The subject of this paper is the interaction of color and light in the material mosaic. In addition, it discusses the viewer as a “participant” in the room adorned with mosaic. The paper deals with mosaic used as a building material and ornamentation. The theory and technique of its artistic scenes and geometrical patterns are traced in ancient and contemporary architecture. When looking at a mosaic wall, the appearence in the room varies: the walls are transformed from matte to shiny and back again depending on light and the position of the viewer.
