RAW turns downtown Montreal into an interactive kaleidoscope

The installation will be on display until February 1st, 2015. We wanted people to play around, have fun and, in doing so, forget about the cold. To see Prismatica come to life is a thrill and RAW is honoured to be chosen to participate in Luminotherapie. From the designers
Comprised of 50 pivoting prisms, each more than two meters tall, Prismatica is one of two installations selected by the juries of the fifth annual Luminothérapie competition and will be on display until February 1st, 2015. RAW have designed Prismatica, a public art installation in Montreal, Canada, that is made from 50 pivoting prisms. With their contribution, RAW becomes the first firm based outside of Quebec to participate in Montreal’s celebrated design competition. As visitors wander among and manipulate the prisms, they will enjoy an infinite interplay of lights and colourful reflections. The prisms are mounted on bases containing projectors. “We wanted to contribute an installation that was immersive, yet inviting. As the prisms rotate, a variable-intensity soundtrack comprised of bell sounds will play.
