Michel de Montaigne

Montaigne on the Pont Neuf

On February 28th, 2014, Jason celebrated the birthday of Michel de Montaigne with a performance on the Pont Neuf in Paris, France. In response to an essay in which Montaigne discussed his sadness that he would not live long enough to see the Pont Neuf in use, Jason decided to cross the bridge with a portrait of Montaigne in tribute.
