Laurent Grasso is presenting his first permanent public installation ‘SolarWind’ in Paris as part of the Grand Paris project. ’SolarWind’ projects the colour fluctuations of solar storms conceived from the Space Observatory’s real-time data onto the walls of the Calcia silos, which border the capital’s 13th district. In translating the power of solar flares, the monumental installation, at once scientific and poetic, juxtaposes cosmic phenomena with our worldly existence and recalls our modern fears of the unknown vis a vis urban reinvention.
