French artist Daniel Buren's latest exhibit, 'Défini, Fini, Infini,' is being shown at Le Corbusier's Cité Radieuse building in Marseille.

The installation features a series of seven previously unseen art works by Buren. The large window underneath the canopy has been sheathed in translucent overlay, adding to the stained glass sections already within the frame. During the evening, light is filtered through the screen, reflecting all other mirrors throughout the space.

At one end of the roof sits a row of angled panels. The upward-facing sections are mirrored to reflect the sky; the rest feature a black, white and red checkered pattern. Meanwhile, the ground is peppered with a lot of small podiums featuring colored tops and striped sides.
