Nova is a video installation inspired by the motion of water. Combining footage of natural flows with synthesized graphics, it presents a portrait of water in transformation – a reality that melts into the imagination. This video projection was made using custom software that combines sequences of moving water with synthesized wave action. For Luminothérapie, images of the Lachine Rapids were recorded as the basis for abstract portraits of Montreal’s fluvial environments. Nova sheds both familiar and strange light on water’s ever-shifting patterns, to reveal the wondrous mysteries of this essential substance.
Nova includes three pairs of video projections, presenting an evolving series that corresponds to the different aspects of water during winter: storm, ice, and the melting of snow.
Nova is presented as part of the 12th edition of Luminothérapie, an initiative of the Partenariat du Quartier des Spectacles. Discover throughout the Quartier several luminous and interactive works as well as an original video projection presented at nightfall. Enjoy your visit!
