Jacques Cartier Bridge


  • Client: Undisclosed
  • Location: Montreal, Canada

“Living Connections” is an interactive public art installation that uses a live data stream in Montreal to regulate up to 500 lighting points that illuminate the city’s Jacques Cartier Bridge. Réalisations-Montréal is one of seven multimedia and lighting studios to have collaborated on “Living Connections” for Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Inc., in celebration of Canada’s 150th and Montreal’s 375th anniversaries respectively.

Each local collaborator made a unique contribution to the initiative. Réalisations-Montréal conceived that big data should modulate the bridge’s lighting points and led the development of the data collection, integration programming, and unique software SENS.ei Data that brought the project’s vision to life.

The project was lead by Moment Factory alongside other collaborators, all of whom brought something unique and indispensable to this project: Ambiances Design Productions, ATOMIC3, Éclairage Public/ Ombrages, Lucion Média, UDO Design.
