The show includes photos and snippets of stories of Christmases past in Joliette: Christmas celebrations, legends, and oral histories.

The show’s highlight is seeing participants interact and appear in the sky, as though they are flying with angelic wings – a magical and poetic Christmas site!

Architectophonie @ Quartier des spectacles

Archi_STILL_Biblio1_big

 

ARCHITECTOPHONIE is an urban obstacle course in which participants experience reactive architecture. Through the magic of video projection, architecture abandons its rigidity in favour of becoming momentarily made out of a flexible sensory material. Projections are affected by the intimate sounds that can be heard in the environment. Sounds are picked-up by smart technology such as phones and tablets and have a direct impact on the soundtrack as well as the architectural projections. The resulting experience is both intimate due to the soundscape and grandiose due to the large scale of the images projected on buildings.

Viewers find themselves in a world of realism and optical illusion, but also in a living architectural landscape that responds directly to the rhythms of the sounds made by the streets. The structural forms of the building ‘move with breath’ as though alive, even crumbling at the surface. In this surreal world, time is not linear – the past and the future meet, based solely on their existence in the same place.
