This immersive interactive installation, comprising metal arches arranged to form a series of tunnels, is a representation of an iceberg’s journey from polar waters to its eventual melting on temperate shores. The public is invited to walk around inside and experience variations in the intensity of light, colours and sound effects that change in response to people’s presence thanks to motion sensors hidden within.
Presented on the place des Festivals et on the Esplanade of the Place des Arts, from December 6, 2012 to February 3, 2013, as part of Luminothérapie.
Designed by Atomic3 (Félix Dagenais and Louis-Xavier Gagnon-Lebrun) and Appareil Architecture (Kim Pariseau), in collaboration with Jean-Sébastien Côté and Philippe Jean.
A production of the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership.
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.
