Place des Arts has taken on the look of a crystal forest with public art installation Luminotherapy. The focal point is Prismatica, a light installation of prisms by Canadian architecture firm RAW. 50 prisms reaching heights of up to six and a half feet emit different colors of light. As they rotate around, bells tinkle. The effect is entirely magical. Videos of a 20th century carnival project on the walls of buildings, adding to the entire ambiance complete with soundtrack. Viewers walk through the forest of sound and light in this immersive art piece. If you want something to challenge the brain, four interactive carnival-style games are projected outside the St. Laurent metro station, all designed by Luz Studio. Need to eat? Food trucks arrive every Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. There are also tours on Thursdays to Saturdays of the whole event. Check out our photos here. Prismatica is on display until Feb 1.

About Michael Bakouch

I'm Michaël, a photographer focused on people in different places. The streets are my medium. So what is "street photography?" Street Photography is an art. It communicates the human condition in public places, within or without urban environments. The presence of the street is not necessary. Its people and or objects can be absent. The environment in which the image is projects the essence of human character. You will discover through my lens how I capture a city, its people and moments. A picture speaks a thousand words Its reality is untouchable, transparent and invisible to our fixed and restrictive fields of vision. (Michaël Bakouch) Contact: Website | More Posts
