Sky Writing

Spotted this summer in Prague: WE, by spanish artist Jaume Plensa is a white coated stainless steel sculpture carved by laser light. In the shape of a man with an open front and incorporating characters from various languages and scripts such as Latin, Greek, Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, Hindi, Chinese and Japanese, this is monumental in it’s beauty. This sculpture was part of the ‘Transparency” project which involved open-air light art shows celebrating the presidency of the European Community by the Czech Republic during the first half of 2009. What a sight this must have been at sunrise or sunset!
