A creation by RAW design

This participatory installation comprises 50 pivoting prisms more than 2 metres tall. Each prism is made of panels covered by a dichronic membrane that reflects a rainbow of colours, which shift depending on the ambient lighting and the viewer’s perspective. The prisms are mounted on bases and fitted with projectors that give the installation a new dimension after nightfall. As the prisms rotate, chimes play music at different volumes.

Presented on the Place des Festivals from December 10, 2014, to February 1st, 2015.

ABOUT LUMINOTHÉRAPIE

Launched through an initiative of the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership in 2010, Luminothérapie has a two-fold vocation. Its goals are to give Montrealers and visitors an original winter experience in the Quartier des Spectacles, and to promote Montreal as a city of design, and to stimulate creativity in the disciplines of urban installations and digital art.

Each year, a competition is held by the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership , inviting competitors to form multidisciplinary teams and propose installations and video projections with a strong urban design component, with input from all artistic disciplines. Thanks to this process, the event encourages not only creativity but the emergence of new artistic practices.
