Zaha Hadid: RÉ

"Each Swarovski crystal can be considered as an individual element that interrelates with, and responds to, every other crystal. Locked in a spiralling vortex, the crystals direction is determined by the forces of an explosion. As with our architecture, contextual embedding is always considered. The chandelier relates to - and interacts with - each new environment in a unique manner; constantly reinventing itself and offering exciting new possibilities with each installation."

I like the play on illusion in this piece and how each little crystal makes up the larger picture of the large installation. The shape is unqiue because it twists and turns changing different angles, instead of just going from point A to B. I like the way the light shines on the crystals to highlight them, and that they are in a dark room so they are easy to see.
