A shadow at the window @ FNC



A six-storey building on the Place des festivalsin downtown montreal has been the scene of A shadow at the window in october 2010. This semi-choreographed architectural work — featuring clips from the festival’s official selection projected onto the brick and glass façade — has been run for the entire ten days of the festival.








The scenes are chosen to create the illusion that the building-wide projection is also happening at the same time in one of the twenty-four windows—silhouettes behind curtains, shadow puppets that could be real people caught in a private moment.

Spectators on site can use their cellphones to select clips as though playing with a giant Hitchcockian jukebox.
