The Standing March was a major public artwork from a collaboration with Darren Aronofsky exhibited in Paris during the UN’s COP 21 climate conference. The video projection was created to remind leaders that the world is watching as they gather to negotiate a deal aimed at keeping global warming below 2°C. It was projected at night on buildings including the Assemblée Nationale, The Louvre, The Pantheon, The Musée Picasso, and The Bibliotheque Sainte Genevieve over the time spanning the conference. Music accompanied the projection, created by 3D from Massive Attack.
For security reasons after recent tragic events Paris, marches were forbidden. However, this art piece was a silent march. One that was backed by monuments like the Assemblée Nationale, the heart of the French democracy. This piece urged for the world to think about our future, the future of our environment and this is our answer to those who want to control our present.
