Optical Illusion for the Louvre Pyramid's 30th Anniversary

For the 30th anniversary of the Louvre Museum’s famous Glass Pyramid, French artist Jeane Rene (JR), created this enormous optical illusion.

The 17,000 sq meter the installation titled “the secret of the great pyramid,” surrounded the IM Pei’s Louvre pyramid, then immediately destroyed.

JR said on Twitter:

“The images, like life, are ephemeral. Once pasted, the art piece lives on its own. The sun dries the light glue and with every step, people tear pieces of the fragile paper. The process is all about participation of volunteers, visitors, and souvenir catchers”
