Ai Weiwei Fountain of Light
This instillation by Ai Weiwei is know as Fountain of Light. Weiwei created this piece in 2007. This chandelier is almost 23 feet tall. This piece was a miniature version of Tatlin's Tower, but to poke fun at the fragility of the monument he made it out of glass and stainless steel. I personally love where the piece is placed in this picture. I feel the building it is in seems almost run down and dirty, yet it holds such a beautiful piece. The architecture of the piece is intriguing to me as well, how it curves and leans is appealing to the eye I feel.
