Artwork description
Installed in the Place des Festivals in Montréal’s Quartier des spectacles during La Triennale québécoise 2011, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s interactive installation, Intersection articulée. Architecture relationnelle 18, is comprised of robotic spotlights that project powerful beams of light that can be moved across the sky by viewers through a series of levers. With light beams that can reach distances of up to 15 kilometers, the presentation of this masterful work required special authorization from several authorities, including air traffic control centres. This installation was produced by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer in collaboration with the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, and the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership.
