montreal-based moment factory has transformed the parc de la gorge de coaticook in québec into an enchanted forest, inviting visitors to the vast woodlands on a nocturnal walk along a magical trail.foresta lumina‘ comprises a 2 km pathway winding through the trees, with bewitched characters (drawn from the area’s myths and legends), colorful illuminated installations and mysterious glowing plant life situated along the way. the scenography, which unites visual projections and lighting, is accompanied by an ethereal soundtrack, fully absorbing participants to the park in a multisensory experience. entirely custom-made, the immersive space is made up of various graphics and props that create the appearance of an all-encompassing sense of magic: perforated metal panels resemble ancient manuscripts, lighting units look like fluttering fairies, and video mapping on natural elements are integrated into the surroundings.
