Danish light artist Olafur Eliasson usually does spectacular temporary installations on a grand scale. His most famous was perhaps The Weather Project at the Tate Modern in London. His latest is one piece of art in multiple identical installations. Louis Vuitton commissioned Eliasson to create a window object, "Eye See You," that they have installed in their stores worldwide. I've already photographed the Chicago and London installations. This is the one in Chevy Chase, Maryland -- just outside of Washington, DC. (There's another installation in Tysons Corner, Virginia, also near Washington.)

 

This time I also captured an image of the apparatus to show how it works. The light source is a single high-intensity tube lamp that sends light rays against a segmented reflector that projects the segments forward to be seen from the street. The light source itself is obscured by a disk that covers all but the reflected images.

This is car 1264, having just departed Friendship Heights terminal. The orange roofed building is/was a Howard Johnsons restaurant. This location is currently home to a WMATA subway entrance, a WMATA & Ride-On bus terminal & a high rise office building.

It's going to be Bloomingdale's instead, due to the merger of Hecht's and Bloomingdale's parent companies.
