Ice Cloud / Nuage de givre
More new artsy things in downtown Montreal… This is kind of a follow-up to yesterday’s Place-des-Arts post, since the photos were taken just outside, on the same evening. I didn’t put everything together because I felt each place deserved its own post.
The location is called Place des Festivals and, as the name says, it is where several festivals (mostly of the music variety) are now held. It was also renovated recently and includes a long strip of sidewalk fountains in summer, as well as different urban art installations throughout the year (when there are no festivals). The following photos are of a display called Ice Cloud (Nuage de givre) which was set up there from December 15 to February 2nd, and consisted of rows of hanging water “containers” reflecting lights onto the snow at night.
My next stop at Place des Festivals? The High Lights festival in a week or two. More photo opportunities!
