Sail worth waiting for

Set sail on a psychedelic voyage at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, which has been covered in an array of coloured filters - 13 hues to be exact - that accentuate the ship-like structure of the building.

The temporary installation by French artist Daniel Buren is called The Observatory Of Light.

It will be on display at the museum, designed by American architect Frank Gehry, at the Bois de Boulogne public park in Paris, France, until the end of the year.

For nearly five decades, the conceptual artist has been applying coloured stripes in different sizes and materials to assorted objects and environments, including bridges, bus stops and museum walls, reported The New York Times.

Mr Buren's patterns are refracted on the 3,600 pieces of glass inside and outside of the building, creating a kaleidoscopic effect that changes depending on the time of day and season.
