Marseille string art

I was walking around the Old Port of Marseilles with friends on Saturday evening, when we came upon a bunch of people lined up along the quay, each with a bucket containing a ball of red yarn.
A woman started telling them to pick up their yarn, and to give her the end.
She gave all the ends to people in a boat.
Who proceded to motor slowly out across the marina.
Hold them high!
Don't let your string drag in the water!
Away they went.
Taking the yarn with them.
All done.
Sadly, some string got left behind.

I'm speechless. What a fun, insane thing to do.

Beautifully captured in your photos, by the way.

I bet that looked cool, the red yarn against the water. (Hopefully they picked it all up afterward) What a random thing to come upon; I love it when that happens.

I wonder if they got a grant of the equivalent of the Arts Council for that?
