"Collectively, I refer to the project as Paradis Vitré, an extra dimensional place, especially in my mind full of characters. Normally, something like this would be a book, but I manifest the characters in the street so that people, dogs, pigeons, etc. are unknowingly part of the story. Sometimes the characters have been rescued by ambulances, destroyed by bomb squads, set on fire by angry residents or adopted by bar owners. I've done these installations in over 30 countries and every time it ends differently although often for the characters it's on the tragic side." Mark Jenkins
