Centre Pompidou

As I was studying for my 20th Century Artistic Institutions class this morning I was reminded of my trip to the Centre Pompidou.  Although it's been a while, there is one piece that still stands out clearly in my mind because it was just so incredible.

At first glance the panels seem to just have a cool pattern, but if you look closely at the shadows you can see they spell out words! These were so beautiful and ethereal in person - it was kind of like being inside a giant floating nest.

Unfortunately I've lost the paper where I wrote down the name of the artist, so if you have any idea who this is feel free to comment, I'd love to know!
