nuit blanche

spent all night at the 'nuit blanche'.  it really was a 'white night' for me, i didn't get home until six in the morning... took the first metro home.  
(could not find a velib, and taxis were not stopping)

for those of you questioning what i spent all night doing, it is when the paris is turned into a city wide art gallery.  art installations are everywhere, including film, performance, dance, and installations.

music with images projected on the buildings, a lot cooler than it sounds… p.s., i'm glad i don't live in that apartment building...

lamps of barbed wire covered from crystalized salt from the dead sea.  i don't think i'm going to go into all of the representation of this one....

 a view from sacre coeur at montmartre, candles burning representing the constellation of the stars.

this  installation was by far my favorite (and i think everyone else's too).  this court yard tucked in between some buildings was a homage to {purple rain the movie and song written by prince}.
this is what you would see when you walked by, crowds and crowds of people clambering to see and get photos (the line was really really long). 
it was literally raining in that courtyard and a lot harder that i thought it would be because i left a bit wet.

go {here} for more info and videos of the evening.

  1. Gosh, it seemed amazing! Though we were not in Paris for the nuit blanche this year, they seem to be getting better and better each year. I love your photo of the tree's shadow on the building. Fun!
