  • France Dubois Nuit Blanche Paris Extrasystole

Nuit Blanche, Paris, 2011

Dimensions : two cabins 3 m x 6 m x 2 m each

Montmartre funicular cabin pulsates with red light according to the rythm of a runner’s heartbeat, who would have climbed the stairs up to the top of the hill. The pulse accelerates sharply on the way up, remains at its climax at the top, then slows down softly during the descent.
Heartbeat disorder, this extrasystole is the symptom of a shared emotion.

Produced by the City of Paris, in partnership with RATP (Paris Public Transportation Company).
