Paris lights

To write the Human Rights on the walls of the Police Station of the 11th arrondissement in Paris

Year :
Location :
12-14 passage Charles-Dallery, Paris, France

Inside the new police station of XIème arrondissement in Paris, one can discover thousands of little lights shimmering like a universe but organized in rational and orthogonal rows.

And if one has to spend some time in that police station to declare some unpleasant facts in their life, they will definitely stare at these stars. This is an atypical lighting system that does not illuminate the space, but illuminates itself.

And suddenly the meaning appears: slowly the signification of the articles of the Human Rights will become readable. These are your rights.
