Mille Enfant de Lyon

A thousand children from schools in Lyon were invited to write their signatures on a small handheld organiser.

Their ages ranged from 3 to 9 years old. The signatures were then coloured and represented as an animated 40 minute video of multilayered zooming images to music and songs sung by children. All was finally shown on the evening of December 8th 2003 as a large scale video projection with sound against the façade of Painleveé School, Lyon. Each child received a small badge of their signature as a coloured image to wear and keep as a souvenir of the event.
