Soo Sunny Park (b. Seoul, Korea) - Unwoven Light at Rice University’s Rice Gallery in Houston, Texas. Composed of 37 individual sculptural units, the installation uses iridescent plexi-glass embedded in pieces of a chain link fence to cast shimmering, colorful reflections across the spacious gallery.

From the proof-that-you-can-adaptively-reuse-almost-any-building department: the giant grain silos that made up the main operations for Quaker Oats in Akron were converted into a hotel.
