Emitting a Warm Glow: Ai Weiwei's "Cube Light" Sculpture

A gorgeous golden glow is emitted from this sculptural work from Ai Weiwei. I love the colour and quality of the light passing through the beaded curtain effect. Even the reflection on the floor is stunning! Ai Weiwei is a famous contemporary artist who is well know for his politically dynamic artwork and activism. You can learn more about this intriguing artist in the documentary "Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry". 

 

I really enjoy this Ai Weiwei quote about creativity from Harvard Business Review: 

 

"Creativity is part of human nature. It can only be untaught. Kids are put through a strong social-educational process that makes it impossible to develop unique thinking. The competition is like a tunnel from which there is no escape. That makes society simple and maybe even effective, but it’s not human." - Ai Weiwei
