KM3 – A public art program, Quartier des spectacles, Montréal
A series of doors creates a path the public is invited to follow, recalling the digestive tract’s ingestion process as the installation breathes and swells to the rhythm of the traffic that passes through it, creating a contrast between mechanical structure and organic movement. The piece repurposes the door-opening device’s mechanical innards, reactivating its technical memory, now made obsolete by the arrival of new metro cars.
