Projectors in Public Art
The Quartier des Spectacles is Montreal's entertainment district and the perfect space for the work of artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. Articulated Intersect-Relational Architecture 18, was created for La Triennale Quebecoise 2011. Lozano-Hemmer's kinetic sculptures are known around the world but this is the first time the artist has produced something of this scale in the middle of a major city-- the place he calls home. The apparatus consists of eighteen 10,000-watt projectors. Six electromechanical levers, each connected to three projectors,will be manipulated by six participants to create sculptures in the downtown sky.
