Paris Light Walk 2021

In 2021, The National Museum of Natural History, France hosted L’Évolution en voie d’illumination, a prehistoric themed light walk in Paris' Jardin des Plantes.


Nicolette was commissioned by Lucy Keeler at Public Art Australia to design several of the 400+ large scale light sculptures as part of a wider collection. Each design included a wireframe structure and bespoke textures for printed fabrics.
