AN ILLUMINATED PLAYGROUND IN THE QUARTIER DES SPECTACLES

The Quartier des Spectacles is pleased to announce the installation of Impluse, the work that will take over the Place des Festivals this coming winter for the sixth annual edition of Luminothérapie.

Impulse is an interactive work comprising seesaws of various sizes, with lighting and sound. To activate them, one person sits down on each end. The seesaws, fitted with LED lights and speakers, then produce a series of beautiful sounds. The intensity of the light varies as the board’s angle changes. The installation and its streamlined design will delight children and adults as they play with the sounds and lighting effects it produces, filling the Place des Festivals with a dance of sounds and lights, bringing joy and warmth to the winter’s cold, short days and dark nights.

Fulfilling the mandate to create a unified Luminothérapie concept, as well as a complement to the large-scale installation, the creative consortium will also produce video projections for the nine permanent projection sites in the Quartier des Spectacles. Two Montreal-based artists will be responsible for the projections: Maotik and Iregular, with soundtracks for the projections and for the Place des Festivals by Toronto-based artist Mitchell Akiyama.

Impulse a participatory creation by the firms Lateral Office, and CS Design, in collaboration with EGP Group.
