Mahaluf Installation

A "quirky" report from Ananova (Artist wraps three floors with elastic ribbon, December 14) describes an art installation called Nodo, in which Chilean artist Sebastian Mahaluf has wrapped three floors of the Centro Cultural España museum, in Santiago, with 8,500 meters (5.28 miles) of white elastic ribbon.

The ribbons cross the middle of each floor several times, entering every window, creating the illusion of the sunlight coming in. Professional climbers were used to wrap the ribbons outside the building. Mr Mahaluf told Las Ultimas Noticias: "This work is very much dependent on people's individual observation because it cannot be seen as a whole, one can only observe bits of it at different times."
Is there anyone reading in Chile who can take a picture of this thing?
