Maria Grazi Rosen

Today we went to see Forum 62: Maria Grazia Rosen at the Carnegie Museum of Art, part of the Venetian artist's series of installations called Gelatine Lux. The twenty illuminated glass chandeliers are other-worldly, glowing in electric colors within a darkened room like a beautiful aquarium. The imagined creatures in glass are described as "aquatic or cosmic."

Here are a couple of Rosen's individual chandeliers:
