Les Diamants

PERSÉIDES STUDIO

Musical; scintillating

A work who shine brightly

Les Diamants dazzle as they reflect sunlight, and shine brightly when they light up at night. From a distance, Alexis Laurence and Francis Laporte’s elegant interactive artwork, Les Diamants, draws your eye, inviting you to get closer and make the structures turn. Their movement produces a melody along with a kaleidoscopic array of glittering lines and points. Each Diamant has its own distinctive colour and tune. When you get together with other people to make each installation spin, the artwork produces a harmonious waltz in music and light, a thrill for your eyes and ears.

Testimonials

Les Diamants was born of Alexis’ and my desire to combine our expertise and undertake a joint unifying project during the pandemic. We want to encourage people to get out, come together and reoccupy our public spaces. Our goal is to create a moment of poetry between participants and for the work to bring joy and entertainment to the citizens of the Quebec cities hosting the installation.”
