Coups de coeur (heartbeats), by Franck Pelletier, Les Allumeurs. Place des Celestins, Lyon.

 

A huge illuminated heart will give the beat to the city and its lovers. Couples are invited to place their hands on the console to monitor their heartbeat and see if both hearts beat in unison.

 

On the red-lit façade of the theatre, a counter will show musical beats, with 120 songs playing over and over. Love songs, of course.

You’ll have to walk the Saône upstream if you want to admire the “Soleil”, illuminated by Philippe Cotton

Place Bellecour, brimming with ideas

What better way to transform the giant screen found slap bang in the middle into a fairground.
