The Cooper Hewitt parabola brings back to the first fluorescent pipe invented by the American Cooper Hewitt in 1901 and also to the book written by the art critic Brian O'Doherty "Inside the White Cube : The Ideology of the Gallery Space". O'Doherty interrogates himself on the line between the Gallery Space and the modernity. The Gallery Space makes sacred the art work and can be considered as a cathedral. Remi Amiot and Jeanne Berbinau Aubry have already used the fluorescent pipes but now they have twisted his using. The both have inspired themselves by the art gallery architecture for building their project. Remi and Jeanne take the gallery lights out because they want to introduce in the French Riviera sky. They create a stain - glass window who looks like a rose - window made with colorful glasses full of ink and with pipes behind. The colors of this rose - window must change after being exposed a long time to the light.
