Nuage de givre consists of 100,000 water droplets in 5,500 special containers hanging over Place des Festivals. By day, depending on the weather, light will refract through the water or glow through the ice. On the ground below, whether snow-covered, clear or icy, reflected light from the gently swaying “icicles” will silently animate the square. After dark, auroras will appear, triggered by the movements of people in the square. Over the course of the winter, the lights compriing Nuage de givre will gradually shift from blue to red, marking the arrival of the New Year with the official colours of Quartier des Spectacles. This large-scale installation will delight anyone who walks through the Quartier’s largest public space.
