HISTORIOGRAPHUS

An interactive urban installation

In the framework of the reorganization of Cabot square, La Camaraderie was commissioned by Ville-Marie district to revitalize the neighborhood. We created four Historiographus inspired from the famous view master to explore Cabot square through its history.

Depending on its orientention in the sqare, each of the historiographus has its own specific thematic: 
Cabot Square through time (architecture), Cabot Square a living place (people), the forum temple of entertainment (culture) and the adventures of the squirrel (canopy). Each of them is depected through 8 visuals which you can see by actionning the lever.
