Nuit blanche 2008 à Paris - Spectra - La deuxième tour Montparnasse (Ryoji Ikeda)

    Newer Older

    Previously shown in Amsterdam, spectra consists of a powerful white light whose
    beam radically alters architectural and urban spaces. Each version is designed
    specifically to suit the scale and features of the site in question. Visible from Place
    Saint-Germain-des-Prés, spectra will be combined with the acoustic installation
    matrix, the two merging into a single work. Ultra-high intensity projectors are
    arranged in squares at the foot of the north wall of the Tour Montparnasse (facing
    rue de Rennes). The vertical beam of light is accompanied by a horizontal layer of
    pure sound waves. As visitors walk around the exhibit, their movements interfere with
    the sound waves, thereby continually creating new pieces of music.
