The National Cathedral: four thousand and a few words

We, like much of DC, trekked up to the National Cathedral on Friday night to see the work of Swiss artist Gerry Hofstetter.

I was ready to be all, "Sure, whatever, a slide show on the side of a building."

But it was really amazing. I particularly liked the way the trees got all trippy in the swirly colored light. And that's all I've got to say about that.

  4. MrsMac - I don't know much about him, but this page talks about him and his work and gives a link to his site, which has very cool pics of monuments around the world: http://www.cathedral.org/cathedral/ltu/hofstetter.shtml

    Ex-DCup - I know!
