1239, avenue de l’Hôtel-de-Ville
Prrr… is a light-based work occupying the empty space above a building with a rich history and drawing from the neighbourhood's memories. Attracted by the glow emanating from imposing blinds, passersby are invited to go down this unassuming street and discover the small house that hides there, unaffected by the passage of time. As they look up, they are taken in by the light moving behind the blinds, and by the evocative soundtrack.
To listen to the soundtrack: prrr.atomic3.ca
