Soleil Bleu Ciel

Montréal, CA

Located in the main corridor of an elementary school, Soleil Bleu Ciel is an interactive kinetic installation activated by movement. 

Indoor sun and sky

Part incredible machine and part optical illusion, this artwork invites the sun and the sky into the building by spinning a series of colored disks overhead. Sensing people walking under, the disks spin and change colors depending on one’s point of view, thus creating a constantly shifting field of colors. 

Collective Prototype Workshop

Before installing the piece, Daily’s team organised a workshop for the students in order to teach them the ins and outs of its technology and mechanisms. The kids had the opportunity to build their own miniature prototypes and to decorate their own discs.
