Montreal displays an installation where architecture, interactivity, sound and lighting fuse around the idea of an iceberg melting by climate change.

Based on the concept that it is undeniable that the planet is increasing dependence on energy and that this burden on our resources is having a negative effect on the global climate, Montreal displays an installation where architecture, interactivity, sound and lighting fuse around the idea of an iceberg melting by climate change.

Atomic3 has been commissioned to conceive this facility which stretches from the Place des Festivals at Place des Arts with a series of illuminated metal arches which produce different sounds.

The arches form a tunnel inviting visitors to enter, listen and touch as the light and sound accompany the visitor in your ride.

Installation follows four stages in the life of an iceberg, since its creation, in the waters of the Arctic to the gradual reduction of its size as it melts on the South coast. Along this journey, Atomic3 has altered the shape, color and dimensions of these pieces of art large-scale, encouraging them with four different sounds.

A series of motion sensors detect the presence of bystander automatically changing the tone of the illumination of the work and the sounds are perceived.

Sound design Iceberg He has been borne by Jean-Sébastien Côté, while interactive systems have been commissioned Jean Philippe (Les Ateliers Numériques), with the technical coordination of Guillaume Simard and Alexis Rivest.

The facility, which was dismantled this week, was the winner of the 2012 Light Therapy, an event organized annually by the association Quartier des Spectacles Partnership Canada.
