    I try not to be pretentious with titles... but this was all I could come up with. :) This is a piece of public art right outside the library at the University of Houston. It's absolutely gorgeous at night.

    That's really cool!
    I would love to go see it!

    Is it shining light through the letters? it's hard to tell from the picture.

    Yeah, it's a big iron spiral with a really strong light inside. It throws the writing all over the place. There's a tree about 30 feet from it, and you can actually read the writing (backwards, of course) on the leaves!

    I've already commented on this picture on another forum, but I have to comment again. I LOVE IT. I'm definitely going to have to get over there and see this.
