The Iron Curtain

I really respond to artists that explore typography as a medium, beyond the canvas or paper. This amazing curtain of type by Jaume Plensa is titled Silent Rain (2003). Constructed of iron in eight parts: with texts by Baudelaire, Blake, Dante, Estelles, Ginsberg, Goethe, Shakespeare and Williams. All I can say is WOW.
