From Arnaud Lapierre, a mirror cube art installation on the Place Vendome in Paris. Created for the 2011 FIAC Art Fair the ring allows visitors to see the historic square, and themselves, in a new way.

Says Lapierre, "The installation embodies a visual effect that is to connect all of these interactions through the implementation of an optical effect: the repetition of an cubic mirror to break the perception of the place. This dynamic installation changes the relationships between individuals and the space they are going through."


"Ring invites the visitor to play with the installation and space on two levels; the very first approach would be more related to experience a change in the urban areas: as a temporal kinetics. The facets of each cube reflects the place and reconstruct a paradigm that breaks the reading of the course. Ring work at this stage as a visual intrusion, an acceleration that changes the perception of the visited place. This is a spacial rediscovery."


"In a second step, the installation proposes to get inside, to see his own image multiplied to infinity, which collides with urban detail, it is now a place outside time and outside spatiality, in total rupture with the outside principle. The vision is more intimate."
