For its fifth edition, Luminothérapie lit up the Quartier des spectacles and filled it with life. Hailing from Toronto, the architectural firm RAW Design transformed the place des Festivals with a gigantic kaleidoscope dubbed Prismatica. Passers-by could light up the fifty coloured prisms by themselves. Each prism held a panelled filter reflecting the colours of the rainbow according to lighting and angle.
Montréal firm Lüz Studio also lit up eight facades of the Quartier with their digital installation Fasciniscope. In the spirit of an early 20th century carnival, four interactive games challenged gamers to test their skill with pear-shaped balls equipped with sensors. With themes like “Chicken Run” and “Serpent Charmer” these games were great fun for all who tried their hand.
