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.
