A work by ATOMIC3

This installation is an interactive, musical, visual and luminous experience – an urban bonfire comprising 220 light bulbs that flicker in response to spectators’ movements. Whether they sway or dance, festivalgoers stir the virtual embers and trigger flames that dance, spark and swirl, creating warmth, light and music. A shared experience conceived as a tribute to Montreal’s inclusive festive tradition.

A coproduction of Quartier des spectacles Partnership and Illuminart, during MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE from February 18 to March 5, 2016.
