Ai Weiwei "Cube Light"

Ai Weiwei has many interesting pieces of work, the "cube light" is one piece of work I found more interesting than others.  Located in the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC the "Cube light"is a giant chandelier, which suspends from the ceiling in the exhibit, it is made up of a cubical grid of metal tubing along with thousands of small crystals that hang on the outside of the chandelier allowing for the internal light to shine light through the crystals.  This creates an appealing amber glow in the room that attributes to the beauty of the overall piece.
