I live in the suburbs of Montreal and that means that I need to commute everyday. Whether you may or may not be familiar with Montreal, this week an interior design structure has officially launched in the entrance lobby of Atrium 1000 de la Gauchetiere. Thats where I take my bus so I pass through it everyday. This new addition is called Stop Motion.
Stop Motion is a kinetic installation which uses changes in lighting and in perspective to play with the architecture, essentially producing a moving sculpture…this installation features reflecting plates cascading from the sky to freeze into a constellation of intriguing objects once they reach the ground.
That excerpt is from the information board about Stop Motion. 🙂
Lets check out what it looks like. The light was not to my advantage yesterday after work but I’m underneath the structure with different angles.
And a full view of ground up to ceiling for the glass panels and reflection 🙂
Its a pretty cool installation. I mean, just all the reflections and capturing so much of its environment all around the lobby. Utilizing the skylight and mirrors and having this effect as commuters and passerbys walk underneath it. Awesome stuff people create, right?
