Richter's stained glass

Artist Gerhard Richter designed this random pixel stained glass for the Cologne Cathedral. I love the contrast of the modernity of the pixel (even as a concept) in such an old context. I also favour the lack of imagery, for a change. And the lovely light effect remains just as entriguing as an old-style stained glass.
