Breath-taking. That is the only way I can describe “Heaven,” by artist Miroslaw Balka. It was a beautiful art installation (one of my favorites at the Nuit Blanche) that gave the  Musée d’art et d’histoire du Judaïsme courtyard a magical effect, as if rainbow-like stars were falling from the night sky, only to go back up again. (Here’s more about his other work)

You can tell that it's me by the green neon light, can't you? lol

In fact, the installation consisted of 68 tubes of twisted plexiglass that seemed to be floating, suspended in the air. Somehow, the light reflected on the glass and created a sight I will never forget.

They look like falling stars, don't they?
