With our short winter days in Montreal, who couldn’t use a little light therapy? Luminothérapie (“Light therapy”), a series of interactive light shows in the Quartier des Spectacles, uses the city as its canvas and turns the area into one big gallery. At Place Émilie-Gamelin’s Éclats de verre, you’ll find a field of deconstructed stained-glass windows controlled (by you) via two spring-mounted cubes, while over at Place Pasteur you’ll find 12 different takes on illuminating the UQAM bell tower. Near the St-Laurent metro station is Forêt Forêt, a modern birch forest filled with the sound of your voice, while last, but certainly not least, is the amazing Nuage de givre, which is made up over 5000 containers filled with 100,000 water droplets, which create a light show which changes based on the day’s weather. Nuage de givre is open until February 2, the rest until February 26, 2012.
