Synergie is inspired by the concept of the neighborhood as a territory – a place shared among a group of people, a place where we feel we belong. This architectural projection, an animated version of a photographic work, depicts different kinds of energy. Together, these energies embody the unique dynamism and atmosphere of the Plateau-Mont-Royal* neighborhood. Residents’ everyday activities are represented by independent animated circles that separate and interconnect in a mesmerizing dance.
From April 1 to June 2, 2019 Thursday to Sunday from sunset to 11 p.m.
