A new artwork from the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) is added to Art public Montréal’s inventory!
Located in the tunnel linking the two main ÉTS pavilions, Circuit de Bachelard is an interactive light- and sound-activated installation. Comprised of common electrotechnical materials, it transforms a concrete tunnel into a work of art. Shifting from a color to another, the luminous fluxes speed up whenever a passer-by whispers into a mike. Its title refers to the journey of philosopher Gaston Bachelard (1884-1962), who was able to blend reason and imagination in his cutting-edge ideas.
The artwork was created by Jean Dubois and Ghyslain Gagnon, the two also collaborated in another interactive work presented during the Biennale de Montréal in 2011.
