Overview

A giant shattered stained-glass window reorganised into a playful maze that offers a unique immersive experience to its visitors, and a colourful panorama to passersby. A light installation in which passersby are invited to wander, becoming part of an ever- changing tableau of moving shadows and multi-coloured reflections created by the sun.

By night, light sources located within the installation illuminate polychromatic the labyrinth dynamically, while an interactive video projection lights up the Hôtel des Gouverneurs. Using two spring-mounted cubes, visitors can transform the space around them by adjusting the video images and the square’s lighting and soundscape.
