For Building Montréal, XYZ’s lighting designers, together with the exhibition curators, developed an original and modern solution to light up the museum’s relics. LED strips are used throughout the exhibition to evoke objects from the past (fireplace, stairs, walls, etc.), which spring to life as they are illuminated. XYZ’s specialists programmed the illumination so it lights up section by section as the narration progresses. The resulting light show provides a stunning contrast between the past and the present.
The Great Peace of Montréal is a multimedia animation that echoes an immense glass wall by artist Nicolas Sollogub on the theme of the 1701 peace treaty. XYZ’s team installed and programmed an interactive video screen that takes the visitor through the steps that led to the signing of this historic treaty between the French and First Nations.
