Something magical happens last week in Paris ! With the help of 400 volunteers, French artist JR pasted thousands of strips of paper around the Louvre in Paris. It turns the courtyard around the museum into a massive optical illusion which provides a glimpse at what may lie beneath the glass pyramid. It was mindblowing.

It took 3 days to past everything, and a few hours to let it see disappeared under visitors feet! “Once pasted, the art piece lives on its own. The sun dries the light glue and with every step, people tear pieces of the fragile paper. The process is all about the participation of volunteers, visitors, and souvenir catchers. This project is also about presence and absence, about reality and memories, about impermanence.” said JR.

It is not JR first work at the Louvres, as in 2016 he pasts a large photographic piece that wraps the iconic glass pyramid causing it to disappear against the palace facade. I was at Paris on this day and had the chance to met him !

I love this project for a long time but forget to share about it here! Richard Wilkinson creates Imaginary insects inspired by popular culture. It draws inspiration from classic Natural History illustration but explores the subjects that we love to collect and classify from the modern world. The first book of the series, working title: “Arthropoda Iconicus Volume I: Insects From A Far Away Galaxy”, is a collection of insects that bear a subtle yet uncanny resemblance to characters and vehicles from Star Wars.
