The Eiffel Tower project was born, while on a vacation a few years ago in Pairs with my partner and young daughter, I saw the Eiffel Tower through a my daughters eyes, as we viewed it from across the city and it inspired me.
Out of curiosity, I wanted to see how the Eiffel Tower is viewed by the residents of Paris, who can see it from their homes, all around the city of Paris. Each window frames the tower from its unique view point, allowing it to play a role alongside the objects within the room, almost like a fairy tale castle in a children's book narrative, quirky and playful.
Whilst viewing the tower from these apartments, the viewer has a sense of experiencing, part of the residents’ lives, sharing this connection with others who can also see it.
The project was completed over two years, each trip took several months of planning, by using social platforms and word of mouth we managed to find all the locations. I was extremely fortunate to have a great team working with me.
The tower divided Parisians when first proposed and built, now it inspires acts of love and helps to unify.
