La Nuit Blanche -- when the old meets the new

La nuit blanche, a sleepless night consacred to contemporary art... and that night, we entered into a cathedrale. Here, artists were performing in a PS2 manner of what the 21st century haloed as Art and Technology!

This is St. Merri Church, built in 1552 in the traditional Gothic style on a site dated back to the 7th Century. In a normal day, the only music comes from the oldest bell in Paris, on the church tower, which dates from 1331.

And here we are, when midnight falls!
Young and excited, we belong to night not day. We worship technology not God. But here we are for the 7th edition of "eve mass" of contemporary art.
