Designed in dialogue with the Frank Gehry building, Daniel Buren’s work, Observatory of light, is spread across all the windows of the Louis Vuitton Foundation, an emblematic element of the building. This film follows the evolution of the work from the installation of the colored filters to its discovery by visitors who give us their impressions.
Daniel Buren talks to us about his work and its challenges, accompanied by the curator Suzanne Pagé and the engineer Nicolas Paschal, who in turn discuss the work and the artist.
