Patterns of Place-des-Arts
The hallway of Montreal’s newly-renovated Place-des-Arts includes a big video wall with several screens creating various coloured patterns, while the extra-shiny black ceiling reflects the whole thing. When I saw it for the first time, I stood there watching the patterns change for several minutes and, of course, photographed it. There were several colours involved, but I decided to go monochrome and thus focus on the patterns. One of the displays also had running text through it (the word “charabia” repeatedly, which means “jibberish” in French) that can be seen ever so slightly in the second picture… And, I couldn’t resist getting a few silhouettes of passers-by in there, too.
