Place des Festivals isn't the only fertile field where installations are sprouting up. At Place Émilie-Gamelin, in the eastern part of the Quartier des spectacles, the Novalux team is working hard to install 300 light fixtures for tomorrow's Light Therapy launch, which will illuminate the famous Champ de pixels.


The installation is powered by six Bixi bicycles, and everyone's invited to pitch in (maybe more like pedal in) to help keep it lit. Every minute you spend on one of the bikes will keep the Champ de pixels shining for two minutes. It all starts at the launch tomorrow, at 5 PM.
