This grass carpet installation Tapis Rouge! was design by Marseille-based artist Gaëlle Villedary for the French town Jaujac. It comprises 168 rollers of greenery spanning 1,400 ft, tracing pedestrian avenues into the city centre, created with the intention to connect inhabitants of the village with the surrounding valley. The work was commissioned to help foster a celebratory mood for the 10th anniversary of the village’s arts and nature trail programs.
