Light Therapy in Quartier des spectacles 2013
Design Competition - Video Projections
The Quartier des Spectacles Partnership announced the two winners of the fourth annual Luminothérapie competition.
The two works will enhance the Quartier des Spectacles experience for visitors and Montrealers from December 11, 2013 to February 2, 2014.
Place des Festivals will be showcased with the metaphorical installation Entre les rangs, designed by a multidisciplinary team led by the KANVA architecture firm. At the same time, the eight building façades in Quartier des Spectacles used for year-round artistic video projections will be lit up throughout the Luminothérapie event by a playful series of projections called Trouve Bob, by the CHAMPAGNE CLUB SANDWICH collective.
Trouve Bob is a large scale animated game that uses the city as a screen. It will give Montreal’s winter the same liveliness and colour as its summer festival season by reimagining the popular game Where’s Waldo? The eight sets of Quartier des Spectacles projection façades will light up with the fantastical world of a nutty character accompanied by an odd assortment of adorable companions. The public will be asked to find Bob, lurking somewhere in the outlandish background of the eight dynamic scenes. This city-scale game makes connections between the buildings in Quartier des Spectacles used as projection surfaces by presenting a series of animations with an exciting mix of formats, graphic compositions, colours and levels of difficulty.
