TOWER


Thursday 5 and Sunday 8 from 7 pm to 11 pm 
Friday 6 and Saturday 7 from 8 pm to midnight


TOWER is a three-part artistic signage project designed to welcome the public and help them find their way around the city. From a distance, five glowing horizontal bars – encircling the tower at regular intervals – seem to float in the air as though in zero gravity. When the visitors get closer, they get a better view of the signs adorning the luminous totem. The aerial and futuristic aesthetic of these tall rectangular structures is inspired by the Deconstructivist architectural style.

Les amours en cage


Thursday 5 and Sunday 8 from 7 pm to 11 pm
Friday 6 and Saturday 7 from 8 pm to midnight


Suspended overhead along the Rue de la République, 300 physalis twinkle and change shades in the wind, as if stirred by an invisible breeze.  The public’s gaze is drawn upwards to admire these lush natural lanterns - perforated or ribbed, lily-shaped or open wide to reveal their glowing heart.    Between the Place de la République and Cordeliers, they come alive, responding to the people below and glittering to the tune of a gentle melody creating a unique musical harmony. An interactive, musical dreamscape in the heart of the city.

MicroCOSMOS


Thursday 5 and Sunday 8 from 7 pm to 11 pm
Friday 6 and Saturday 7 from 8 pm to midnight


A twenty-sided mirror has been erected on the Rue du President Carnot.  During the day, it reflects its environment and the people admiring their reflections, storing the sunlight to become a source of light once night falls. The fascination for stars as light-generators inspired the Mindscape Studio and Ygreq Interactive to create a work that seeks to encompass a fragment of the Universe. MicroCOSMOS embodies this minuscule part of the immense cosmos drawing a parallel with the microscopic dimension of the human body.
