French artist Julien Berthier's Love-love is, as he describes it, the permanent and mobile image of a wrecked ship that has become a functional and safe leisure object.

Mr. Berthier does some pretty cool stuff, actually. Among many of my favourite is Les Spécialistes, a façade that leads nowhere and the Silent Sentinels, a portable, gasoline-powered, telescopic lamppost. Or this.
