Photographer's Note

CONVERSATION IN NICE is an art installation by Jaume Plensa on the Place Massena in Nice. It dates from 2007.

Seven translucent characters sit or squat in the manner of scribes of antiquity on metal poles about ten meters high. At night they light up and seem to interact.

They are said to symbolize the seven communities of the seven continents and the light represents the interaction between the different communities.

"Like the lighthouses on the coast, the figures seem to watch over us, protect us from above. Without disturbing the emptiness of the square, they invite us to look up and rediscover the sky of the city," says Jaume Plensa. (quoted in French wikipedia)


This picture shows six out of seven figures with a stormy sky in the background. Nice buildings provide the colours.
