Overview

Sculptural light artwork permanently located in Place de la Gare Jean-Talon, first of a series of 4 art pieces presented on landmark sites of Villeray-Parc-Extension-St-Michel neighborhood in Montreal. The common language of all 4 sites are lines of light, lines of transportation that were extremely diverse and shaped the neighborhood in different ways.

Reflecting the neighbourhood itself, the installation is interwoven with rails, much like the newcomers who weave connections with local communities. The interplay of the rails interspersed with miniature train cars evokes the multicultural dynamism of the area.
