KM3 – A public art program, Quartier des spectacles, Montréal
Thresholds is an installation featuring doors from Montreal’s metro cars. The series of doors creates a path the public is invited to follow. The experience recalls 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.
