Florian Rivière describes himself not without reason as a »urban hacker«. His interventions are exclusively made by objects he found in the street. Reprogramming the city implies for him playing with the waste material lying around unattended, building and staging cheeky interventions that subvert the norm with bursts of spontaneity and humor.
French conceptual artist Michel Blazy makes rare use of white foam. His latest installation called »Bouquet Final« was located inside a 13th century monastery near the Jardin des Plantes in Paris. This free-flowing, floodable substance was bubbling a collection of amazing cloud formations into the classic architecture of the building in an impressive way. The foam was produced by a generator from behind the installation. For more examples of Blazy’s work, visit his gallery. Beware: installation is not suitable for foam parties.

The second loop, 1925 aka Hell, is based on Lesage’s painting »A symbolic Composition of the Spiritual World« from 1925. It lives here.
