Christo Unveils Inflatable, Light-Infused Installation in Germany
Christo. The “largest indoor sculpture ever made”. Opened on March 16 2013, the inflated “Big Air Package” was designed to occupy a 117-meter-tall former gas tank known as Gasometer Oberhausen in Germany. The 90-meter-high, 50-meter-wide sculpture was made from 20,350 square metres of semi-transparent polyester fabric and 4,500 meters of rope, with a volume of 177,000 cubic metres. This was the first major work after the passing of his wife and artistic partner Jeanne-Claude in 2009

lygia pape: 'tteia I, C' at venice art biennale 09
'Tteia I, C' by Lygia Pape | Having worked in painting, printmaking, sculpture, dance, design, film, performance, and installation, Pape is one of the most influential Brazilian artists today. ‘Ttéia I, C’ (2002) represents her late and very ambitious research into three-dimensionality. Based on experiments she began in the late 1970s, these works are made of carefully lit gold threads appearing to be of cosmic immateriality.
