I’m Seeing STRIPES!!!

If you are ever in Paris and happen to be near the “Palais Royale” they have this really cool courtyard set up like a distorted checkerboard set, where kids are hopping all over these black and white striped columns of varying heights. What is this all about??? Well it is actually called “Les Deux Plateaux” which means TWO TRAYS… but it is more commonly called, “Colonnes de Buren” BUREN’S COLUMNS, after the artist Daniel Buren who created the exhibit. The installation was met with much controversy both for the cost and its unsuitability to the historic landmark where it was being placed. Although many people seem to enjoy the display, which took the place of a former parking lot, the concrete columns were expensive and have been costly to maintain. Either way… it made us smile to see it and everyone here was having fun running in and out of the display. C’est la vie. ??

Wow! That is quite different…. sort of like the Vatican home guard uniforms don’t quite seem in place but they stand out!
