Megaphone

Posted by Marilena, 

Megaphone by Moment Factory, is an urban art installation about reappropriating public space, that gives everyone an opportunity to join in on the discussion. As participants speak, their words are transformed, in real time, into images projected onto the façade of the University of Quebec in Montreal, leaving their visual "footprint" on the urban landscape.

Inspired by the city's early 20th-century history of popular assemblies as well as the 19th-century British tradition of the Speaker's Corner, the installation gives everyone a chance to speak out and air their concerns. Megaphone is presented by the National Film Board of Canada and Quartier des spectacles, created by Moment Factory and staged by Etienne Paquette.
