At daytime, 30 prisms suspended over the court yard diffract the sunlight as its rays touch the prisms.

At nighttime, 45 immerged lights behind the 200 m long facade related to a weatherstation on the roof, make visible the mouvements of the wind in real time.

Mille Temps, a permanent installation on a school campus that Lichtig set up in the southern French town of Serignan. The sunlight falling on prisms causes small rainbows to appear, the nocturnal light phenomena are the result o retranscriptions of the measurement of wind speed in real time.

« Qu’est-ce que la Méditerranée ? Mille choses à la fois. Non pas un paysage, mais d’innombrables paysages. Non pas une mer, mais une succession de mer. Non pas une civilisation, mais des civilisations entassées les unes sur les autres. »

(La Méditerranée, Fernand Braudel)
