THE SCREEN MOSAIC
The Espace culturel Georges-Émile-Lapalme corridor features a multimedia zone. A mosaic, made up of 35 digital screens, broadcasts content relating to the performing arts, or simply inspired by the space. The videos shown on the screen mosaic are true works of art, designed by visual artists. The original design of this mosaic was created by multimedia designer Éric Villeneuve (Multimédia Novalux). The idea is to give passersby and spectators attending performances at Place des Arts a chance to take a break between the performance halls—offering a moment of decompression, like going through an airlock.
