A video projection that echoes the elements

This futuristic digital work of art gives puts the imaginations of passers-by front and centre. Taking the form of a video projection in three scenes, it offers a changing perspective on the universe. The colourful shapes are influenced by Quartier des Spectacles weather data from the last 24 hours and fluctuate between order and disorder in a floating, reassuring environment. The slightest change in wind, temperature or time of day can have a major impact on this microcosm, depicted in a science-fiction–like setting.

How does it work?

Gravitation is a generative work of art shaped by data from weather stations on Esplanade Tranquille and at Place des Festivals. Based on computer algorithms, the content unfolds automatically and often in random fashion. For this video projection, weather data is the raw material used to create unique works that evolve in real time.

Artist Féline B has created a series of compositions that provide the foundation for this digital work. Algorithms developed by Rodeo FX harness data on weather fluctuations over the last 24 hours and determine the creation’s ever-changing incarnation.


Artistic direction and creation: Féline B

Multimedia designers: Samuel Tremblay et Nicolas Dubé-Pauzé (Rodeo FX)

Producers: Marie-Pière Poulin et Sébastien Hell (Rodeo FX)
