Green Carpet Installation Following Picturesque Pedestrian Trails
The beautiful town of Jaujac, France recently became part of an art installation designed by Marseille-based artist Gaëlle Villedary. A visionary design made out of 168 rollers of grass attempts to connect the inhabitants with the surrounding nature. This display of grass cannot be ignored, as it runs through the village leading to the city center. Undulating down the hill and marking the middle of the pedestrian trails, the Green “Red Carpet” - Tapis rouge! – installation stretches along 1,400 feet and weighs 3.5 tones. Carefully placed on flights of stairs and taking straight and circular corners, the green carpet crosses a bridge and continues through the sand covered area where people can rest and play. Designed to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the village’s arts and nature trail programs, this perfectly adapted bio installation strongly connects the picturesque landscape to the solid stone buildings, creating a fairytale atmosphere.
