Exploring Art and Solitude: Path of Beauty

PathofBeautyA woman in France takes a day to explore the Musée du Louvre, enjoying the fine art, the fragments of ancient times and the historical gifts it has to offer. She is all by herself, refusing to invite friends or colleagues on her journey. There is no one else around, because Parisians were busy that day. I hope she realizes there will be no one to help her in the gift shop, either. A short film directed by Florent Igla.

Fine artist Eric Standley creates paper stain glass windows by layering together hundreds of colored papers and laser cutting them. He begins each project with a drawing that helps him develop the intricate patterns and placement needed to create the effect. By aligning positive and negative spaces, Standley creates the impression of pieces suspended atop one another. The resulting pieces are full of detail and depth, with grandeur that recalls ancient cathedrals.
