Currently showing in Paris, this suspended piece is 100 feet long, 40 feet wide and 30 feet tall. Wow. Mind blown. It has LEDs!

Dubbed Branco Luz (“White as Light”) and “Simone” (in homage to French thinkers Simone de Beauvoir and Simone Weil) the work features an inflatable, sinuous form that is covered with crocheted textiles.”
