Part construction game and part collective DJ or VJ set, this installation is inspired by Norman McLaren’s unique techniques. Visitors arrange building blocks on a treadmill. The ephemeral structures transform into a cubist animation with different colours and sounds every time, projected live on a nearby building. There are infinite possible visual and sonic compositions.
Presented from April 11 to June 1st, 2014, on the Théâtre Maisonneuve de la Place des Arts wall, as part of the event McLaren Wall-to-Wall.
A collaboration of the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) and the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership.
Artists: KID KOALA and HOLOLABS
About McLaren Wall to Wall
To mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of legendary filmmaker Norman McLaren, in the spring of 2014, a special series of architectural video projections graced eight building façades in downtown Montreal. Among them were four winners of an international call for proposals, three interactive works by Montreal artists, and excerpts from nine of the great artist’s signature works.
