Art Installation Mimics The 5,000 Footprints Of A Dance Floor
Architect Jean Verville's project transforms quiet public spaces into areas of communal movement and color
Over 5000 foot prints make up architect Jean Verville‘s winning installation DANCE FLOOR at Canada’s Montreal Museum of Fine Art. The glittery gold and black pavement that was laid in the adjacent Museum Avenue inspired the visiting crowds to break out into sporadic and chaotic movements. Selected to run cohesively with the Pompeii exhibition, DANCE FLOOR could be interpreted as an ode to the opulence and grandeur of the immortalized ancient city.
From afar the street long installation allures visitors to the museum with it’s glittering, colorful underlay. Once upon the unique pattern, visitors are engaged with Twister-esque notions at their feet.
