PARIS IN BLOOM

Spring has almost arrived in Paris–the sky is actually blue and the trees are singing, vibrating with the gregarious chatter of invisible birds, all talking at once, excited to be back in the city again. Likewise, it seems as if every Parisian has taken to the streets today, strolling somewhat languidly, “licking” shop windows, taking to the parks and squares and gardens… The moment reminds me of a piece I saw at 100% Design in London last September by a group of Korean artists who take city maps and rotate them, creating leaves and flowers out of the arteries, veins, and capillaries of streets, lighting them up in incandescent boxes.
