Impulse, a winter installation comprising 30 giant seesaws that will transform the Place des Festivals into a vast illuminated playground, accompanied by a set of all-new video projections. The creation is the work of Toronto-based firm Lateral Office and Montreal-basedCS Design, in collaboration with EGP Group of Montreal.
The consortium, chosen through an open competition for the sixth annual Luminothérapie event, has created a playful interactive space that will warm hearts of all ages during the cold season. The video below shows the process of building and testing the seesaws.
“Every year, we are eager to give Montrealers a new creative winter experience in the heart of the Quartier des Spectacles. Luminothérapie’s public installations transform our relationship with the city, beautify it, and give it a wonderful friendly touch. Luminothérapie also keeps Montreal shining bright around the world as a hub of interactive art,” said Chantal Rossi, Ville de Montréal Associate Councillor Culture, Heritage and Design.
