Puerto Rican Light (Cueva Vientos) is a reader's guide to the Dia commission by Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla situated in a natural limestone cave system near the southern coast of Puerto Rico.
This bilingual companion publication eschews the traditional catalogue in favor of gathering contemporary scholarship on the issues surrounding the project. It pairs photographs of the journey to and from the site with newly commissioned texts, acting as both artist's book and scholarly compilation.
Contributors include art historians Yasmil Raymond, Manuel Cirauqui, Yates McKee, and Molly Nesbit, architectural historian Spyros Papapetros, biosemiotician Kalevi Kull, biologist Emma Stone, historian Sharon Beder, philosopher Timothy Morton, anthropologist Michael Taussig, political theorist Franco "Bifo" Berardi, and novelist Juan López Bauzá.
