Gaëlle Villedary’s Green Carpet: Connecting Man & Environment

Talk about the “red” carpet treatment – eclectic French artist Gaëlle Villedary created a 420 meter grass carpet that runs through the centre of the tiny old village of Jaujac using around 168 rolls of sod (almost 1,400 feet), weighing in at 3.5 tons. The project was unrolled for the 10th anniversary of Jaujac’s arts and nature trail programs and was intended to reconnect the village to the valley that surrounds it, creating a balance and connection between human and nature.
