My wife and I have decided to embark on a three-week trip to Europe. During our travels I will be sharing with her many of the places I visited during my travels abroad as a young architecture student.
One such place is the Jewish Museum located in Berlin, Germany and design by architect Daniel Libeskind. In addition to how extraordinary the building itself is, it contains one of the most moving and experiential pieces of art I've ever encountered. The installation is called Shalekhet (Fallen Leaves) by artist Menashe Kadishman and is located in one of Libesking's "Void" spaces deep in the museum.
Should you ever you have the opportunity to visit this work of art, you'll find that the architecture, art, and history combine for an experience that is both quite horrifying and beautiful at the same time.
