Aura – Immersive journey
touchdesigner / photoshop — 2016
Aura is a journey into the heart of downtown Montreal that allows the visitor to rediscover St-Denis st. between Maisonneuve and Ste-Catherine. For the 2016th edition of “La Nuit Blanche à Montréal”, we offered a contemplative and immersive experience, a place to hang out, have a drink or take a break and soak the place. Aura has attracted more then 15 000 visitors in its suiting and luminous environment.
From the original concept, I have first worked as scenarist, creating an environnement of contemplation and relaxation that would suit the large clientele of “La Nuit Blanche à Montréal”.
Then, as Artistic Director, I assure continuity between the script and the visual aspect of the project, working closely with both teams. I have also created the architectural projection on the St-Jacques Church and on UQAM’s D Pavilion, using TouchDesigner, Photoshop and Illustrator as my main tools.
