Massive Moving Holograms of Dinosaurs Turn the Streets of Paris Into a Prehistoric Safari

Julien Nonnon Prehistoric Safari Street Art

French artist Julien Nonnon brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “City of Lights.” His specialty street art utilizes an embedded video projection system, allowing Nonnon to decorate the facades of buildings with massive holograms of dinosaurs. Among them are well-known species like the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops, and Brontosaurus. Nonnon placed these prehistoric creatures in the alleyways of the Jardin d'Acclimation and invited visitors to explore the immersive installations, which included interactive live shows.

This series, titled Prehistoric Safari, focuses on the streets of Paris; however, Nonnon has taken this specialty art to several other locations. According to his artist statement, Nonnon developed his own tools to allow him to project his creations in any location that inspires him. The French artist uses a combination of street art, kinetic installations, digital creations, and video mapping. Once a series is completed, Nonnon provides a map link so that viewers may track all of his art around the city.
