La lumière des mots/ The light of words


La connaissance est là pour nous éclairer, s’est dit l’artiste Jim Sanborn, en créant cette oeuvre pour la nouvelle bibliothèque de l’Université de Houston. Des poèmes, des extraits de roman, dans toutes les langues viennent littéralement vous éclairer dès la tombée de la nuit, grâce à cette spirale de cuivre et de granit.

Did Jim Sanborn thought about the idea that knowledge will show the way ? Well with this art piece, created for the new Houston University Library, you literally see words light up the place: poems, novels and prose, in all languages are projected on the surrounding walls, thanks to the spiral of copper and granite.
