Yann Artus-Betrand Exhibit

We provided 24 yurts for an exhibit for French legion of honor recipient Yann Artus-Betrand. Yann is an internationally renowned photographer, most well-known for his images from airplanes. His newest project was a focus on abstract out of reality. When his plane broke down in Africa, he got the idea to shoot video of human emotion/circumstance around the world. He created the video project: The 6 Billion Others.

  • Timeframe: Our challenge was to create a global village in the Grand Palais in less than 2 months.
  • Installation: We built, shipped, and installed 24 yurts, featuring acoustic sound barriers and lighting, that would become 24 mini movie theaters.
  • Use: Each yurt showed one of 24 mini documentaries focused on human encounters.
