2019 Featured Installations

"Iceberg" by ATOMIC3 and APPAREIL Architecture

“Iceberg” is a playful sound and light immersive work that tells the story of an iceberg and brings winter to Breckenridge. Winner of the 2012 Light Therapy competition presented by The Quartier des Spectacles Partnership in Montreal.

APPAREIL conceives an architecture well rooted in our nordicity where each element returns to its essence.

"Loop" by Ekumen

“LOOP” is a retro-futuristic luminokinetic and sound installation with wheels 2 meters in diameter. Hybrid between the zootrope, the music box and the lever stick, LOOP creates animated loop loops using a mechanism set in motion by public participation. Thought on a large scale, the work is accompanied by monumental video projections on the surrounding facades, extending the immersive urban experience.

“LOOP” won in 2016 the seventh edition of the Luminothérapie competition of the Quartier des spectacles of Montreal (Quebec, Canada). This distinction earned him a two-month deployment in the city center, a large influx of visitors and a media infatuation from its conception.

"CLOUD" by Caitlind r.c. Brown and Wayne Garrett

“CLOUD” is an interactive sculpture created from 6,000 incandescent light bulbs by Canadian artists Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett. The piece utilizes pull chain switches and everyday domestic light bulbs, re-imagining their potential to catalyze collaborative moments and create an enveloping, experiential environment.

"Les Voyageurs" and "Les Oiseaux," by Cédric Le Borgne

The U.S. premiere of Les Voyageurs and Les Oiseaux, a series of luminous wire sculptures by French artist Cédric Le Borgne.
