I Started this project thinking about Paris and the enormous tourist industry that exists in this town, So I thought of creating a Guest book for Paris the city itself and it’s guests. I placed the book in random places around Paris, such as trains, metro station and different streets to see how people would interact with it. A ordinary object in uncommon places.
Found in the streets of Paris….
A brief history:
In November 2009, France President Nicolas Sarkozy uploaded a picture of himself at the Berlin wall on his Facebook page. Sarkozy claimed to have been there the night the Berlin wall collapsed and helped by chipping at the wall with an axe. After thorough media investigation, it turned out that Sarkozy was not actually there the night of the collapse, but only visited a week later.
Then we found out that Sarkozy was also there, at the Battle of Iwo Jima
and there at JFK’s assassination
And now after having been all around the world and present at important historical events, Sarkozy has returned to Paris to rest a bit… but this time he was there! On your trip to Paris!
