Yves Behar Reveals His Inner Glow With Anima Terra

Yves Behar is set to unveil his newest creation this weekend at the just opened extension wing of the Art Institute of Chicago. It’s a departure from his design work–as one in a series of "laboratory works," it’s a purely sculptural creation called "Anima Terra," a living landscape animated by glowing LED lights which continually change colors.


The new work will be in good company: It’s part of the permanent collection, in the newly completed modern wing of the Art Institute at Chicago, which has been a decade in the making and contains the the museum’s modern and contemporary holdings in art, design, architecture and photography.
