Paraglider Christophe Martine founded Porté par le Vent® in 2002. He runs workshops, exhibitions and wind-themed shows. Light and wind are the raw materials he harnesses to shape his installations. His first collaboration with the Festival of Lights dates back to 2011 with Luminéoles. A keen nature lover, he has invented a universe inhabited by strange flying creatures which he transposes into urban environments from Shanghai to Quito. Is it a bird? Is it a fish? Fruit or flowers? Everyone is free to interpret his artworks as they wish as long as they retain their sense of wonderment.
