What is Noctambule ?
During the month of June 2021 at the Centre de la nature of Laval, the graduates of the bachelor’s degree in Communication (interactive media creation) of UQAM invite you to Noctambule, an interactive ambulatory pathway pushing the boundaries between dream and reality.
The present global pandemic has exposed the fragility of our daily life. Overnight, our life was transformed just as a collective dream with a dystopian note. Noctambule offers in a way an escape of this reality hardly tamed, imbued with the desire to discover the public space under a new light. Inviting you to an ambitious sensorial journey, this pathway is marked by three digital and interactive installations magnifying the nature surrounding it.
Sheltered from the storm
Dancing like there is no tomorrow
The mirage’s pursuit
Noctambule wants to offer a digital and interactive art activity, safe and accessible at a time when the cultural offer is reduced more than ever. Democratic and even family-oriented, Noctambule is the perfect opportunity for Laval residents and for curious people from the regions nearby to discover digital art and interactive media that stand out for their versatility and ability to adapt in these uncertain times. The students have risen to the challenge of the pandemic and are implementing collaborative efforts to conceive an event where physical distancing is not only possible but becomes central to experiential conception.
After three years of this bachelor’s degree, Noctambule constitutes the summit of the university education for students of interactive media: the learning acquired through this experience will serve as a lever for their artistic and professional progression. Recipient of the “Projet”, formation” and “espace” grants from the first edition of the Pôle lavallois d’enseignement supérieur en arts numériques et économie créative, Noctambule will promote the creativity and the ingenuity of the next generation in UQAM’S interactive media creators.
