Le niveau monte (The level rises)
Installation in a park (2010)
Parc André Villette, Fresnes, Val-deMarne, Fr
Casein paint, natural ocher pigments
dimensions ~ 0,8 ha

At one end of the park, a precise altitude level is defined. The resulting imaginary horizontal plane is materialized by painting the tree trunks up to this level. The paint is natural and biodegradable, made from casein (milk) and red ocher earth pigments (iron oxide). This looks as if a colorful flux had suddenly risen, leaving its trace all over the park.
