Walk the Green Carpet

Public artists Gaëlle Villedary helped the French village of Jaujac celebrate the 10th year of its arts and nature trail programs by cutting a new green path through its city center. Using some 168 rollers of turf grass, spanning 420 meters (or nearly 1,400 feet), the public artists wound 3.5 tons of natural material through the streets of the old town.

According to Landezine, one goal of the project was to connect the heart of the village” to the valley’s rich natural setting. In this instance, the path is itself a “piece of nature” designed to create a “communion between nature and man through art.”
