Monday 3rd October: Paris - "Observatory Of Light" by Daniel Buren at Fondation Louis Vuitton

"Observatory Of Light" by Daniel Buren - coloured panels as a temporary site specific installation at Frank Gehry's building for Fondation Louis Vuitton.  I can't believe that this cosmic structure could become even more incredible, but it has.  The multicoloured gels and stripes added to pattern each sail not only add a depth of hue when the sun shines thru but they also become like stain glass windows as shadows and silhouettes fall on the interior walls.  I feel so lucky to have visited Paris now at this time to see it.  No matter how long you look at it, each angle just gets better and better.  You could stay there all day!  (Plus the permanent commission of yellow lit mirrors by Olaf Eliasson)
