This year (the 4th edition) the Luminothérapie art installation at the Place des Festivals is called Entre les Rangs. The inspiration of KANVA, in collaboration with Udo Design, Côté Jardin, Patrick Watson, Boris Dempsey and Pierre Fournier, the Luminothérapie installation will run from December 11th through to February 2nd.

The installation consists of 20,000 flexible stems with white reflectors at the top to mimic a wheat field. At night the ‘wheat field’ will be bathed in light from projectors above, and with the wind moving the stems, light will be reflected off the stems. In addition as you walk through the ‘field’ you will be accompanied by music performed by local artist Patrick Watson.
