delirious frites.

what do you do with an abandoned, unused alley-way in quebec city canada? fill it with hundreds of pool noodles of course...
i read about the installation by the young design group les astronautes on the contemporist. according to the contemporist, the name delirious frites comes from the pool noodles used for the installation, frites de piscine or "pool french fries."

taking an abandoned alley, a space which goes unnoticed on a daily basis, a space that is basically anonymous, and transforming it, thrusting passers by into another world for a few fleeting moments is just plain the best idea ever! and also a fun post for a back-to-work tuesday. enjoy!
