Who To Believe? by François Abélanet
Public art with a purpose never looked more optically interesting; French artist François Abélanet created this land art, Who To Believe?, in front of Paris' City Hall. The three-dimensional piece is on view through July 15.
At certain angles, the piece looks like a large sphere, but its actually a angular piece of land. As Abelanet notes, "we live in a world where one hears the debates of ecologists, scientists, manufacturers... I simply wanted to note the problem of the tree and invite people to question the place that it, nature, and the environment have in their lives."
