Daniel Buren colours the sails of Frank Gehry's Fondation Louis Vuitton



French artist Daniel Buren has covered the glass sails of Frank Gehry's Fondation Louis Vuitton building in Paris with an array of multicoloured filters (+ slideshow).
Named Observatory of Light, the site-specific installation was unveiled yesterday at the Fondation Louis Vuitton arts centre in Paris' Jardin d'Acclimatation.

Daniel Buren ? a French artist known for his in-situ works ? has covered the 3,600 pieces of glass making up the building's 12 sails in brightly-coloured filters.

The colourful pieces have been arranged in a chequerboard-like formation, and have been applied to both the inside and outside of the building's glass facades ? creating a kaleidoscopic effect that changes depending on the time of day.
