Earlier this year, the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership in collaboration with MUTEK and MAPP_MTL invited creators and artists to imagine an innovative interactive mapping project for the building façade next to Saint-Laurent metro station in Montréal, a site passed by thousands of people every day. Six semi-finalists were selected and will receive a grant to develop a prototype.
At MUTEK_IMG these prototypes will be presented during two screening sessions in the Quartier des Spectacles at Saint-Laurent Metro Station.
Wednesday night: the prototypes are tested by the jury in front of the public
Thursday night: the prototypes are tested by the public
The teams will also talk about their artistic concepts and innovative use of technology on Thursday afternoon at the Phi Centre. The jury will announce the three finalists shortly after, during the cocktail.
