Visitors of the five-star Joule Hotel in Dallas will now be greeted by more than a welcoming staff with the addition of Tony Tasset‘s newest work. The maverick artist, whose year has also been decorated with a secured position in the 2014 Whitney Biennial, has taken his talents to Texas to expand the Joule Hotel‘s growing art collection. The sculpture – which was seen in a similar form back in 2007 – is a 30-foot, three-dimensional sphere modeled after Tasset’s own eye.

Enjoy a look at the piece above.
