Ring Mirror Installation by Arnaud Lapierre

Visitors of the Place Vendome in Paris, France were treated to a stunning art installation last weekend during the FIAC 2011 conference.  The Ring Mirror Installation by Arnaud Lapierre, sponsored by Audi, is a reflective cylinder composed of mirrored blocks stacked in a variegated fashion.  About the Ring structure, Lapierre explained, “‘The Ring’ is an installation that takes into consideration the urban space networking: the rhythm, flow, organization and spatial hierarchy. The installation embodies a visual effect that is to connect all of these interactions through the implementation of an optical effect: the repetition of a cubic mirror to break the perception of the place.”  The view from within looks remarkable, it’s a shame Lapierre’s work is only temporary.  However modern it may appear, it looks at home in the classical buildings around it in Paris.  [via yatzer, photos by Eric Mercier]
