    Bleigiessen by Thomas Heatherwick at Wellcome Trust in London. It's 30 meters high indoors with an adjacent elevator to view it in it's entirety. Bleigiessen means 'lead guessing' and is a New Year's Eve tradition in Europe where lead is poured into water and the shape tells your fortune. This giant bleigiessen is made of large glass beads suspended from stainless steel wire. Go see it!

Could we please have more public art like this? Thomas Heatherwick Studio's sculpture for the Wellcome Trust headquarters in London leaves me in awe.

This is truly amazing and innovative! Thomas Heatherwick

More than halfway through art school, Motoi Yamamoto's sister succumbed to brain cancer. The resulting grief prompted him to abandon his work in traditional painting in search of something more fundamental. Because salt is a funerary material in Japanese culture meant to help cleanse one of grief, it was a natural choice for the artist. Yamamoto uses salt in either loose form to create intricate labyrinth patterns on gallery floors or in baked brick form to construct large interior structures.
