Jurassic Spark

Dec. 8 to 10 | 8 p.m. to midnight

Perched on an industrial container is Gustave: a life-size steel stegosaur, made by Romain Lardanchet in collaboration with the Fernand Forest vocational school.  Artist Mr ZL is covering it with a moving suit of light comprising LED's and floodlights which light up and go out in time with an ethereal and sparkling choreography reminiscent of the atmosphere of a simultaneously Jurassic and industrial era. Everything is bathed in an acoustic ambiance designed by Jean-Charles Daclin.

In the night, four robots with articulated metal arms play with light animations on their screens. Six naughty little robots, sometimes giggling, try to escape from the control of their larger counterparts. In a festive digital convergence, these robots are there to show you that they can amuse you and make you smile.
