Place des Festivals is shining through the use of dominos, music and lights.

SAT Fest

An immersive light, sound and visual art show inside a dome has taken over Montreal’s Society for Arts and Technology (SAT).

Exactly, trippy.

Artists from Japan, Brazil, Bulgaria Australia and Canada will be presenting inside the dome tonight.
