moment factory creates an ambitious multi-sensory experience inside the gothic interior of montréal’s notre-dame basilica. the 45-minute installation, AURA, combines sound, light, and colorful projections to enhance the existing architecture and emphasize important elements of the gothic style interior. the designers describe, ‘AURA was born out of a desire to bring this iconic heritage landmark to life in a new way. the project uses intricate projection-mapping technology to highlight the intricacy and beauty of the basilica’s majestic architecture and sacred art while framing it as a dynamic part of montreal’s history and spirituality.’
moment factory’s 45 minute installation is divided into two acts. before the presentation, the visitors are encouraged to travel through the basilica, taking in all facets of the complex interior and its artworks. the basilica’s architecture then comes alive and envelops the spectator from the pews. montréal’s notre-dame basilica was designed in 1824 by irish-american architect james o’donnell. the project for o’donnell’s church was conceived in 2015 by moment factory in collaboration with paroisse notre-dame, the managers of the basilica. because of the multi-faceted nature of the project, the team required a year to complete the vision which included musical compositions and recordings. after all the elements were completed, individually, the project took 90 days to install and an additional month of testing.
