I'm looking forward to RedBall Paris and the magnificent sites throughout the city, including a few that have never been attempted before.

Today marks the launch of artist Kurt Perschke’s RedBall Project Paris, France tour. The tour will include ten days of landmarks and surprises as the project wedges into architectural locations throughout Paris. Locations of the Paris sites are only being disclosed on today via the RedBall Project’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.

The playful art project invites the public to touch and interact with the ball as it moves through the city. Perschke says, “On the surface, the experience seems to be about the ball itself as an object, but the true power of the project is what it can create for those who experience it.” The 250lbs inflatable ball measures 15 feet high and is constructed from river raft material. Perschke is known for his work in sculpture, video, and collage.

The project recently wrapped up its tour in California and has toured cities such as Abu Dhabi, Barcelona, Taipei, Sydney, and Chicago over the past ten years.

Followers of the RedBall Project are encouraged to share their interactions via popular social media networks like Twitter, Google+ and Instagram by using the hashtags #maredball and #redballproject throughout the tour.
