A work by Alexandre Castonguay

An ode to freedom of expression and the place of cyclists in the city. In this participatory piece, the "AgitPOV" devices attached to the bicycles that make up the Ferris wheel transmit the words of passersby. Created during the 2012 Quebec student protests, these little boxes are tools that allow citizens to express themselves, relying on persistence of vision to broadcast political messages or poetry. Alexandre Castonguay is also responsible for the digital fresco on the Grande Bibliothèque.

Presented at the Grande Bibliothèque from August 30 to October 15, 2017, as part of KM3.
