WISH WE WERE HERE

May-June 2009

Work in collaboration with Christine de la Garenne

Light-Installation in public space, 15 sites

In situ installation developed in the framework of «Indisciplines» that took place in the city area of ​​Nice.

Project of de-routing a luminous map.

To create a new initiative for the city of Nice, we are proposing to light up unusual spaces.
To re-route and illuminate places otherwise uninteresting, reveal hidden details, and reanimate dead angles.
In order to open up new viewing aspects and divert the passer-by, we want to bring to light the small things that compose the urban complex, just as the monuments and the palaces do.
We intend to redirect one’s attention to a human scale.
The extra-luminous device is composed of halogen lights, which are connected to the public electricity system.
The implementation is ephemeral, moving, and precarious.
Let new behaviours emerge through new places.
