The Bouquet Final art installation involves a lot of foam. Enough foam to fill an entire 13th century Parisian monastery. Spanning the wall of the College of the Bernardine, a massive metal scaffolding will be constantly printing sheets of foam until October 13, 2012. Due to the nature of such suds, the Bouquet Final art installation won't end up filling the entire space. Instead, it will be constantly replenished as the foam disintegrates with time.

Created by French artist Michel Blazy, the Bouquet Final art installation "refers to the possible future of our planet, and the work itself is concerned with Earth’s fragility in the face of overconsumption and general environmental disregard," according to Fast Co.
