    Arago’s agora

    In the light of the stars, the light of words radiates…

    For its 350 years, the Observatory of Paris opens a digital guestbook. In homage to the generous and universal mind of Francois Arago, one of his most illustrious scientists. He invites all the “thinkers” of our time, whatever their origin, to write a message on the large blackboard used by Arago for his famous courses of popular astronomy in the nineteenth century: a bequest to the future generations.

    A project carried out by artist Claude Courtecuisse and developed by ateliergh.

    Observatorio Somnia

    The work of Thibault Jeanson results from a long immersion in the Observatory to better highlight its essential elements. An ambience, a detail, a flash of light, characterize his pictures, dominated by feeling.

    The ateliergh, conceives the hanging system and the staging of this very beautiful photographic work while taking into account the many constraints of the place. A modular support that comes to rest on the existing structures and offers maximum flexibility for long-term use.
