The exhibition The Globes in 3D

The Globes in 3D

Dear Readers,

Amateur of history, art and travel, this is, particularly, in celestial and terrestrial globe that I find serenity. This is with emotion that I glimpse, through those pieces of art historical moments. During those quiet moments, I remind me those episodes during my childhood when I imagined myself as a conqueror, a traveller or an explorer, searching unknown places where I could find a playground for my aspirations of this period.

As years went by, my aspirations have changed… However, globes have stayed one of my sources of inspiration. 

The Bibliothèque Nationale de France

A few time ago, I was consulting specialized revues about architecture in the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, when, animated by a need of intellectual travel, I decided to open the exhibition’s doors of the “Globes 3D”. This is how I conquered note one globe, but of several globes. So, I browsed the few meters which separated me from the spheres when few feelings invaded me: happiness, curiosity, emotion… This is how I entered in this place. And, with a certain wonder, I discovered spheres, celestials ones, terrestrial ones which remind me childhood. I was filled by those artistic wonders, when, suddenly, I saw, by far, digital pictures. Intrigued, I walked, as the explorer in quest of discovers to find: digital globes.  At first, astonished, then impressed, I felt full of travel needs: in the seas, in lands, in airs… I needed discoveries, cultures, new faces, landscapes…

I finally decided to come back to the hotel La Bourdonnais. I settled myself in their tea place, one of the most soothing places I have ever known in Paris, to read again the biography of Bertrand-François Mahé de La Bourdonnais, common inspiration source to this hotel, as me.  I have stayed for a while, in this haven of peace, full of evasion needs, new philosophies, new knowledges, because, as Emile Zola said "Nothing develop intellect as travels”.

See you soon,
