A majestic phoenix, the incarnation of the mythical animal symbolising hope and rebirth, has landed in Lyon. Neon lights vibrate with a multitude of bright and changing colours, evoking the beautiful plumage of tropical birds such as the blue-throated macaw or the yellow-fronted parrot.
The Phoenix is reborn from the ashes as a flock of birds in the heart of the city. The birdsong, recorded in French Guiana, adds to your impression of being in the midst of a tropical forest.
The changing colours of the Phénix are inspired by the plumage of different birds threatened by extinction, thereby encouraging the public to think about conservation of the species.
