Canadian Pavilion, Expo 2000, Hanover. Germany
Concept – Directing – Script – Installation -
Circuit/Multimedia show in the Canadian Pavilion for Germany's World Exposition on the themes of sustainable development: nature, technology and mankind.
The concept integrated a seasonal gallery with modular decors, artefacts, mirrors and video projections forming a virtual river made up of five hundred video monitors and 2000 transparencies. This opened the way to an immersive, 360º multi-media theatre with HD projections on water screens and nine suspended giant screens. It also integrated a cyber-salon where interactive stations were placed within an animated setting.
