"Artist Teresita Fernández's installation, which will turn the Louis Vuitton store on Union Square in San Francisco into an official "Maison" for the luxury company, will add a touch of blue to the environs. That's because Fernández's piece, called "Hothouse (Blue)," consists of a large piece from translucent blue glass overlaid with some 16,000 cabochon mirrors. The effect is dazzling, in the literal sense. "I wanted the piece to activate the space so that viewers entering the store could look up and catch shimmering, reflective glimpses of passersby and atmospheric conditions seen through the windows," Fernández said."
